OTOH, if Westbahn can provide someone taking over the leasing
contracts, they may get along with a relatively small amount of
fees.
And why would ÖBB and DB want to help Westbahn buy Chinese trains?

There is something in the whole story that doesn't make sense.

After the rumours about buying Chinese equipment it has now been announced that Westbahn have ordered 15 6 car KISS units from Stadler.

They have agreed the sale of all their existing trains to DB. 9 units will transfer in December this year meaning Westbahn will reduce their service between Vienna and Salzburg to hourly and only run from Westbahnhof until the new units are in service in 2021.

Although 4110.010 was repaired some time ago. It has remained stored in Switzerland and my now go direct to DB
