dpa / Süddeutsche Zeitung

Bavarian state interior minister Joachim Hermann calls for the electrification of old train tracks in light of pollution from diesel emissions, reports news agency dpa in an article carried by Süddeutsche Zeitung. “I want us to talk about a special electrification programme, so that we steadily get off diesel,” said Hermann. He wants to introduce the topic in possible coalition talks after the German general elections in September, writes dpa.
