How do you like the Siemens propulsion on the light rail vehicles?

 

I was just about to ask that question myself! What do you think of it? How does it compare with the R160B Siemens propulsion systems (if you're familiar with them?)

Its not totally the same with the Siemens P2000s and the R160Bs. Taking off, doesn't sound the same between the two. Slowing down and coming to a stop, sounds very much similar.
