Commuter train undergoing testing

QCOSTARICA – If you see the new trains running these days, don’t be surprised. Since February 1, the INCOFER – Costa Rica’s railway – began the tests on the new commuter trains that will start transporting passengers in April.

Operational tests of the new self-propelled trains include technicians checking the speed of the train to circulate at 70 km/h without any problems.
