A POWERED VEHICLE WITH INTERCHANGEABLE AXLES FILLS A GAP IN CONTAINER TRANSPORT ON THE DB

SELBSTFAHRENDES UMSETZFAHRZEUG SCHLIESS EINE LUCKE IM CONTAINERTRANSPORT DER BUNDESBAHN

At the present time 2 percent of part-load traffic is containerised, which bears little relation to investments. Following experiments, a new item of equipment has been invented, which even with a live catenary can transfer two containers from one wagon to another or on to a lorry in the space of 2 minutes. It is fitted on a transporting wagon which has two driving axles and can haul two more loaded wagons. It is not connected to terminals and can be incorporated in trains, which enables it to be used in networks with secondary terminals. Propulsion: 100 kW diesel hydraulic.
