Notes: Florida Dept. of Transportation's fourth double decker DMU (Diesel Multiple Unit) tucks into the numbering scheme out of sequence. The unit is being built to run with last year's set, DMU 703 and trailer 7001.

The 704 should be identical to TRCX 703, the first double decker DMU ever built. That unit features seating for 165, with an ADA-accessible restroom and Colorado Railcar's first straight stairways. The 706 will also feature the slightly curved upper level windows that were found on the 703 and commuter coach 7001.

The 704 should be joining the Florida fleet in the summer of 2007.
