The author, Senior Chairman of the Deutsche Bundesbahn, General Manager of the Eurofima Company, explains the reasons for forming this Company, whose objective is to finance the purchase of standard rolling stock, as well as how it is organized and where it obtains its resources. He refers to the rapid and continuous growth of its potential since it was formed 15 years ago, and explains how capital has been obtained with increasing success on the international money market, the results obtained by ordering in certain countries, for many users, large quantities of both tractive and hauled rolling stock of standard type under particularly satisfactory conditions. Now that the technical studies are completed, Eurofima will make an active contribution to the effective introduction of automatic coupling.
