DEVELOPMENTS IN THE WELL-WAGON SECTOR

NEUENTWICKLUNGEN AUF DEM GEBIET DER TIEFLADEWAGEN

The author deals with the relationships between transport undertakings and shippers and forwarders. Compared with ordinary goods wagons, which are usually still serviceable after thirty years, specialized wagons can already be out-of-date after 15 years in respect of dimensions and weight of load that can be carried. The railways are then obliged to place orders for new designs, and because of the smaller numbers built of a given type, these wagons are very expensive. But since specialized wagons are much in demand the railways' investment risk is an acceptable one.
