The German Federal Railway has produced plans for four new bogie wagons to carry heavy out-of-gauge or over-length loads throughout the system. They are all designed to carry heavy and lengthy indivisible loads, such as girders, transformers and chemical plant, and have maximum payloads ranging from 56 to 186 tons. The pivots of all the bogies and connecting beams are without pins. A load mounted on the bearer beams can be transfered to DB heavy road vehicles without additional equipment being required. Wheelsets can be changed to enable the wagon to run on broad-gauge tracks.
