"Green Cargo was forced to take some of their wagons out of traffic on the basis of last year's fires. Now trains company drivers who drive vagnstypen to reduce the risks of sparking along the tracks, reports the P4 Värmland."
"We have the wagons in a condition which shall not cause this and is now going out to our staff so that they will be vigilant on the brakes in a manner that will not cause sparking," says Håkan Sjöström at Green cargo's press service to the P4."
"Sparks from a passing train caused a series of grass - and forest fires, among other things, in Värmland, sweden, last year. According to Håkan Sjöström, it may be appropriate to take vagnstypen out of traffic also in the years."
"– We will follow this closely now and hope that what we do has an effect, " he says."
"– we Have to choose between the risk of fires and to make a restriction in our traffic, when we choose the latter in this case."
