In November 2009, the PrimaII No.1 was decorated with EUDD plus stickers on both sides. EUDD stands for European Driver Desk, hopefully the new standard for all manufacturers serving the European market. For more information check the EUDDplus website .
On 17.12.2009 we could attend a test run with Prototype No.1 at Wegberg-Wildenrath test center and Alstom explained how the EUDD was built, tested and evaluated. One cab of Prototype No.1 is fitted with the EUDD prototype (picture 1) and next to that a simulater (picture 3) is available at Wegberg-Wildenrath. Both are developed simultaniously and therefore Alstom invited train drivers from ten different European countries (the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Poland, Austria, Switzerland, Hungary, Italy, Czech Republic) to use and evaluate the EUDD extensively.
