Fyra is the second international high speed train for which Globrands has developed the name. The first one, “Thalys“, rides through Germany, France, Belgium and The Netherlands. It has become a phenomenon that widely exceeds the original concept of a train in these countries.
Compared to Thalys, Fyra rides shorter distances in a higher frequency; hence the shorter and lighter name. The name had to make it possible to market the new train as Thalys’ sparkling, fiery little sister.
