These CFD railcars are light vehicles with axles equipped with double-stage suspension. These vehicles combine comfort and simplicity.By combining the lightness of its body, a high-efficiency diesel-electric drive train and its specific suspension system, this railcar range is the technical and economical solution for operating small lines or secondary lines.
Available in versions from 1 to 5 carbodies, this railcar series adapts to the needs of transport operators. Each trainset is designed to allow for its evolution over the years, whether in terms of motorisation (hybridation or electrification), vehicle configuration (addition of one or two intermediate trailers to an existing trainset even years after entry into service) or interior fittings. Thus all configurations exist and allow transport operators to define their rolling stock fleet as best as possible and to develop it as they wish.
The end vehicles are equipped with a cab with a wide driver's cab that complies with current standards, high-powered air conditioning, a disabled access WC and two side access doors that are compatible with platform heights of 550 mm, 760 mm or 900 mm from the top of the rail.
The interior of each vehicle can be fitted out according to the customer's specific requirements. It is thus possible to give preference to seating or areas for the transport of bicycles either at the time of purchase or by choosing the CFD modular system, which allows the customer to switch from one configuration to another within a few hours.
The 2-axled railcars are available with a diesel electric power train or, on request, with a pantograph for catenary collection 750V DC/1500 V DC/ 25 kV 50Hz. For hybrid solutions, the electrical architecture of the trainset allows all existing or future energy sources (combustion engine, Li-ion batteries, hydrogen) to be combined and an electric traction motor or auxiliary simply added to the train line.

The CFD railcar driver's cab is wide and spacious. It has a central driver's cab and a large windscreen to ensure excellent visibility for the driver. The front part of the cab incorporates shock absorbers to dissipate the energy of a possible impact with another rail or road machine at a level crossing
