DER STADTBAHNWAGEN M BZW. N-EIN FAHRZEUG FUER DEN STARTBAHN-VORLAUFBETRIEB TUNNEL-STRASSE

The M-carriage in the Ruhr region (a metre gauge metropolitan railway) has been developed by the traffic authorities in the Ruhr together with the coach building and electrical industries, for use both in tunnels and on streets in sections of the existing tramway network. The modern equipment and the high state of technology are dealt with in this paper. No noticeable difference in comfort has been noted by the passengers on this metre gauge vehicle when compared to the steadily expanding normal gauge urban rapid transport network for the former metre gauge tram routes.
