Talbot Services and Railpool – Two strong partners for green travel

July 30, 2020

As a financing partner of FlixTrain, Railpool has acquired used compartment coaches which are converted to high-capacity coaches by Talbot.

In the FlixTrain project, Talbot Services GmbH is modernising the coaches for the Railpool Group and, within the scope of leasing the coaches for 15 years, is assuming full service including the ownership and also ECM responsibility.

About Talbot

The original Talbot family business was founded in 1838 and was managed by the founding family in the fifth generation until 1995. Talbot Services GmbH took over the site from Bombardier in July 2013. Thus, we see ourselves as a new generation of Talbötter, combining tradition and future.

As a partner to the rail vehicle industry, our range of services includes both the construction of new passenger trains, including commissioning, and the maintenance, repair and modernisation of all types of rail vehicles. Whether passenger vehicles, traction units or locomotives (diesel or electric drive), we have the necessary infrastructure to carry out all types of work. The know-how of our experienced staff and the ISO 9001 certification is a guarantee for the high quality of the work carried out. Mobility is the driving force of Talbot Services GmbH. Thus, the expansion of the portfolio to include the construction of electric vehicles is a step in new directions. In cooperation with StreetScooter GmbH, the pre-series for a major order is currently being built.
