NEWAG S.A. con­ducts over­hauls and perio­di­cal repa­irs of all pas­sen­ger car types: com­part­ment cars, open coach cars, sle­eping cars, dining cars, buf­fet cars and pas­sen­ger cars for people with impa­ired mobility.

Moder­ni­sa­tion of the 168A pas­sen­ger car is an exam­ple of imple­men­ting latest design trends appe­aring on Polish rail­way tracks. The pas­sen­ger com­part­ment inte­rior has obta­ined a truly modern look due to the appli­ca­tion of modu­lar polyester-glass panels. Unob­tru­sive, suita­ble ligh­ting, ergo­no­mic seats, air-tight win­dows signi­fi­can­tly redu­cing noise, fit­ted with day and night blinds, have resul­ted in an ele­gant and com­for­ta­ble look.

Desi­gners have also added incre­ased car wall insu­la­tion, which has signi­fi­can­tly impro­ved the car’s ther­mal and aco­ustic para­me­ters. While tra­vel­ling pas­sen­gers can devote their time to work in peace and quiet because each seat has been equ­ip­ped with a soc­ket ena­bling pas­sen­gers to plug in a lap­top or a mobile phone.

The 168A pas­sen­ger car was cre­ated fol­lo­wing the over­haul and moder­ni­sa­tion of the 111 A com­part­ment pas­sen­ger car. The result of the over­haul and moder­ni­sa­tion was an open coach second class pas­sen­ger car adap­ted to needs of disa­bled pas­sen­gers on wheelchairs.
