The Stadler Pankow GmbH in Berlin was founded in 2000. At this time only the Regio-Shuttle RS1 was manufactured at the site. Later on more vehicles, suitable for regional and suburban rail traffic, were developed, e.g. the GTW as electric and diesel-electric vehicle and the Flirt as electric vehicle and for optimisation in the streetcar and suburban train division, the Variobahn and the Tango. The latest development is the double-decker motor train set KISS. In the paper presented further development of Tango and Flirt and the new developed KISS are described.

Test runs to determine the fatigue strength of structure components are a fundamental part of the authorisations of tramways. Beyond the requirements of the applicable regulations, there will be achieved a greater acceptance of the stress analysis with customers and authorisation agencies, as well as the economical risk of the vehicle manufacturer is minimized. These studies demonstrate the capability of a detailed analysis of the test runs in order to determine which additional information can be obtained from the large amount of measurement data. Using the discretization in connection with a detailed analysis, there can be determined which impact is done to the fatigue strength of the structure components by individual sections of the network as well as different routes and circulations.

Even 15 years after its introduction into the market the success of the Regio-Shuttle RSI continues, despite the large variety of Diesel vehicles in Germany. In 2010 more than 90 RSI were sold for six different projects with deliveries that have started in 2011. The following article gives a short insight into the past as well as into the new projects and it shows the prospects of future development.
