Since the beginning of operation on the extended and modernized facility on December 2, 1993 the second generation vehicles are used. The nominal capacity of each cabin is 45 passengers.

Based on the technology developed by Siemens Transportation Systems the vehicles are composed from the two main elements, cabin and running gear.

The cabin is mounted on the running gear by level-controlled pneumatic strings with hydraulic dampers. For advanced stability, the carrying structure of the cabin is built from aluminium extrusions, which are known for their high corrosion resistance and stiffness in combination with low weight.


The interior of the cabin offers 16 seats and space for further 29 standing passengers. The control and monitoring systems are also placed in special compartments inside the cabin. If needed, the vehicles can be operated manually from inside the cabin.

Large panorama windows and two pairs of sliding doors on each side characterise the exterior view of a H-Bahn cabin.
