The one I rode was both R160Bs, but both Siemens And Alstom. Its funny listening to two propulsions accelerating at the same time.

 

Here's a little something for ya

This is unique having two same train sets with two different traction motors, but two different R160 sets with two different traction motors, that's really a big something. :cool:

Does the train have a distinct bucking when riding?

 

It kinda has that R142A type feeling when its about to accelerate, a bit jerky, otherwise its a really good ride.
