Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Baureihe 420 is a light-weight commuter electric multiple unit developed for the S-Bahn networks in Germany and was originally commissioned by the Deutsche Bundesbahn for the Munich S-Bahn, Stuttgart S-Bahn and Frankfurt S-Bahn networks. It could seat 194 second class, 17 or 33 first class, depending on series. The pivot distance was 16.5 m in cab cars and 14 m in trailer, with a floor capacity of ca. 1 m. It ran at 15 kV, 16 Hz, with a tractive effort speed of 72 km/h and acceleration of 0.9 m/s2. It was built from 1971 onwards in several series, later changing the construction from steel to aluminium, making the cars more lightweight and able to carry a greater payload.
