RADIO CONTROLLED DIESEL SHUNTERS

The author reports that Hoogovens Ijmuiden BV steel works, in North Holland, have been studying locomotive shunting operations under portable radio control and have developed full remote control of its new O & K diesel shunter fleet in conjunction with Theimeg, overcoming interference problems and noise-level confusion to site staff. Hoogovens currently have 21 shunting locomotives modified to operate by portable wireless control and a General Electric Bo-Bo of 90 t.
