For the first rail vehicles, such as the "Adler", a mechanical screw brake on the tender was enough in 1835 to slow the train down safely from its permitted speed of 28 km/h. More than 100 years later, in addition to mechanical pneumatic braking systems, electro-magnetic rail brakes were already being used in order to bring the streamlined motor coach, the DRG 137 of the Cologne design, from a speed of 160 km/h to a stop over a distance of 800 metres. Today also eddycurrent brakes are used on modern train sets.
