Rolling stock

Multiple units, freight wagons or special infrastructure vehicles – the rolling stock owned by SBB reflects the breadth of an integrated railway company. The traction vehicles in SBB Cargo’s possession show how many freight locomotives are available for operation, either because additional locomotives have been rented or SBB Cargo’s own locomotives have been rented out. SBB Passenger Traffic Services related to rolling stock are of particular interest to passengers. And SBB is contributing a lot to noise protection with low-noise rolling stock.
