Sm6 Allegro High Speed EMUs

Welcome to the Sm6 Allegro Pendolinos Theme Page. While the refurbishing lasts, the older page can also be found. This page also has Allegro technical information, the complete Allegro roster pictures and links to the relevant pages near the subjects.

The Allegro of Karelian Trains is one example of the new era, where the rolling stock no more needs to be directly VR owned, but through one of it's subsidiaries.

Finnish railroad organizations and railroad operators have their own pages, as well as the largest operator VR-Yhtyma and a newcomer to the field Junakalusto.


While much of the passenger traffic concentrates around the capital Helsinki, you might be interested in the roster pictures of VR-Yhtyma, Junakalusto and the city of Helsinki operator HKL. HKL operates the metro and narrow gauge trams

Picture: Still unnumbered on the early test drives the Pendolino works it's way slowly past Kerava. The expanded roofline hides a huge amount of additional electronics comapred with the earlier units, plus of course double pantographs for both 15 kV 50 Hz and 3000V DC electrical systems.

Karelian Trains Allegro Pendolino Sm6 nr2 on the curve at Kerava junction in Kerava, Finland

The lower curve at Kerava junction is an interesting place to snap pictures. The Allegro #02 stopped just in the right place for turn around (the test drivers walk through the train to the other end) for a great picture taking opportunity.
