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.

The ČD Cargo locomotive transported the express train from Vienna

On Saturday 31 August 2019, the Wiener Lokalbahnen special express train departed from Vienna. The ČD Cargo locomotive 187.344 was at the head of the PKP Intercity express train set to Břeclav.

The locomotive was suitably used for this special express train while waiting for its own freight train.
