Oct 1 (Reuters) - Bombardier Inc , the world's largest train maker, said it won two contracts totaling about 121 million euros ($155.67 million) for rail networks in Germany and Malaysia.

Bombardier won a five-year, 281 million Malaysian ringgit ($91.94 million) contract to supply its Cityflo 650 driverless train control system for a network in the Greater Kuala Lumpur area, the Canadian company said.

Separately, it said it will also supply five double-deck trains to Deutsche Bahn AG , the German national railway company, for about 50 million euros.

Deutsche Bahn AG has already ordered 135 of the variable double-deck coaches for long-distance services as part of a December 2008 contract.

The delivery of the trains, called Twindexx Vario, is scheduled to start in the second half of 2014.
