Status : Current, Under review   Published : November 2007



This standard defines basic requirements for the braking of passenger coaches in trains hauled by locomotives as described in EN 14198, using UIC air brakes (RIC traffic) operating on routes of the European railways and their infrastructure systems.

The vehicles meet the following technical criteria: .inclusion in trains in accordance with EN 14198 in regular railway operation is possible (coupling capacity); .the maximum speed is between 100 km/h and 200 km/h; .the lower vehicle limitations of UIC 505-1 (WIs 00256150/151/152) are adhered to.
