Operation of “silent wagons”

With effect from 1 January 2020, Switzerland shall apply Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/774 on the reduction of noise from rolling stock. We remind all customers that only consignments loaded in wagons equipped with silent brake blocks will be accepted for transport to or transit through Switzerland. These are wagons which have next to the inscription of the type of the brake additional marks “K”, “L”, “LL”, or wagons with disc brakes, where the letter “D” is indicated.
