PLASTIC SEATING IN OPEN COACHES

DER PLASTISITZ IM GROSSRAUMWAGEN

Until now the large compartments of DR's two-level coaches have been fitted with seats with tubular or sectional frames. With a view to reducing the weight of the rolling stock, a new plastic seat has been tested, which is 10 & 17 more fire-resistant than the old type. After a successful three-year trial period, DR are planning to introduce this new type of seat more widely.
