In the case of AnsaldoBreda, beyond production quality and management issues, the failure to deliver the IC4 had an extra reason: a case of cascading problems. The theory is that AnsaldoBreda gave priority to another customer and another troubled product: the E.403 locomotives for state railways FS (last I heard, those are still not operational).
But, to not let up Danish authorities: their error was to go with the cheapest offer... an error amazingly repeated by the Dutch-Belgian high speed consortium.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
