It has been for quite some time. Many of the trains had to go back to Hitachi to be disassembled due to cracking of the frames.

From my recent trip: a front-seat ride end-to-end on the SIEMENS VAL208 system at Paris' Charles de Gaulle Airport: CDGVAL!





I love the automated announcements! The diction is flawless. The strange little blurble noise the motors make every time it takes off makes me so happy.

Siemens' rail division is merging with Alstom's, which ends speculation that they would acquire Bombardier's.

I missed this video when it was first posted (must of been a day I surfed the site at work where YouTube is blocked)... 

Was surprised in the announcement in French of the word Terminal, instead of Aerogard.  Always learning new Quebec only words! (Like how some stop signs in France say STOP, or the KFC's in France being called KFC!)
