ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the report resulting from the comprehensive investigation conducted by international auditing group KPMG and Berlin law firm Gleiss Lutz of the Berlin S-Bahn since the collapse of services in Berlin, Germany in July 2009. The report found technical and design failings in the Class 481/482 electric multiple units (EMU) which form the bulk of the S-Bahn fleet, notably in components such as the wheel discs, drive shafts and brake assemblies.
