Follow up for Handelsblatt News am Abend?

German publisher Holtzbrinck (Handelsblatt) is ending the print edition of the free ‘News am Abend’ edition soon (see previous post) but their most important client, German railway Deutsche Bahn wants to continue the free daily project, with or without Holtzbrinck. News am Abend is now distributed from 16:00 on in first class coaches of the German ICE trains.

According to DWDL (quoting the media magazine Kontakter) one of the possible new partners for a free train daily is Axel Springer, the long time adversary of free daily newspapers in Germany. Also Holtzbrinck is approached to continue the project.
