DEVELOPED by Vogel Interieur Schienenfahrzeuge in conjunction with TriCon Design of Weiden, the Wing modular seating system has been designed for applications ranging from metro cars and suburban rolling stock to high-speed trains. Wing components meeting railway mechanical strength and fire safety requirements can be assembled as desired; four different combinations illustrate the wide range of potential uses.The basic Wing seat comprises a seat pan and a seat back in shaped plywood, mounted on a frame. For a greater degree of comfort, flat padding can be clipped to the seat and back, and a headrest provided. Armrests and fully-padded coverings in textiles, synthetics or leather are available for vehicles deployed on longer journeys; an adjustable version fitted with a table, and other accessories such as a reading light and waste bin, would be suitable for first class applications. The lightweight Wing family has been developed for outright purchase or hire, and its modular character lends itself to simplified, cost-effective maintenance. To cater for the rail market, established bus seating supplier Vogel Industrie established its Vogel Interieur Schienenfahrzeuge subsidiary in 1993 at the Waggonbau Ammendorf site in Halle. Current production includes Type RE seats for German Railway regional express trains.

The Ghana Football Association (CAF) has confirmed coach Maxwell Konadu will be in charge of the Black Stars remaining two AFCON qualifiers against Uganda and Togo this month following the delay in appointing a substantive coach. Konadu has so far picked up four points from two games in the qualifiers following the sacking of Coach Kwesi Appiah.Even though, the GFA’s search committee has completed its task of interviewing prospective coaches, the Ghana FA and Ministry of Youth and Sports are yet to finalise arrangements for a new coach. “Maxwell will be in charge of the two games unless something dramatic happens or something new happens, he is in charge and will name the squad for the two matches,” Ibrahim Saani Daara revealed.Ghana will play Uganda in Kampala on November 15 and face Togo at home on November 19.
