The -rtoct rerious bottleneck in the repair and new production of rollinrr stock is the lack of white retals (Laageriaetallen), since even the small quantities of tin, basriura and zinc for adcition to lead are 3-nakin?, The leek of coupling 'hooka, buffer springs, lubricating pads rod ot'~er fittings is provonting repaired' rolling stock in the shops from being put into service. This lack, particularly of steel blocks for rolling into girders and Petal. &soets, is jeopardizing the projected now construction of I4,OCO freight.. cr. x?sa No plans are known to exist for the increase of the capacity of the railroad lines to the ports of Rostock, Warnen%tnde and Wismar.
