More quiet freight cars on the rails
The number of new and existing freight cars with the noise-reducing composite technology has increased further. In the year under review, about 7,200 existing freight cars were converted to whisper brakesNo. 05. At the end of 2017, about two-thirds of DB Cargo’s actively used cars were running on quiet brake shoes. The development is therefore consistent with our forecast from the 2016 Integrated Report.
