That's what I thought as well. But does this have anything to do with who makes them? Is there some reason why you can't run a longer train with Siemens cars, or are they confusing two issues?

Of course, there's also the additional problem of what happens if a door comes off a German train in the tunnel...

I agree; I don't think it is a matter of exactly who makes them, just that they are to be made to a certain specification and only one maker is doing it that way. The confusion is at the reporter's end.

Never underestimate their intelligence, always underestimate their knowledge.
