BERLIN, Sept 7 (Reuters) - Deutsche Bahn is seeking to limit its spending as its debt pile nears 20 billion euros ($23.2 billion), several managers at the company told Reuters on Friday.
Big-ticket orders will require special authorisation, they said.
A spokeswoman for Deutsche Bahn said that it was a normal corporate procedure to respond to financial challenges. She added that that did not mean that Deutsche Bahn would seek to cut corners in terms of quality and customer satisfaction.
