Block Train Transports with Bulk Goods

The shipment of bulk goods by rail is an increasingly economical alternative to road transportation. Above all others, companies in the construction industry have been relying on the rail road for years, playing an integral role in environmental protection and relieving the roads. Lower transportation costs and better reliability are clearly a major advantage.

We ship bulk goods wherever we can load and unload. Our services range from creating logistics concepts to implementing customized shipping solutions with high quality and efficiency. Therefore, we not only serve our customers in the area of transportation, but also in the planning and reactivation of railway sidings.

Freight Car Technician

Our Deutsche Bahn certified freight car technician performs visual checks and technical freight car inspections and special checks on railway vehicles, even in combined transport. These checks determine the operational safety and rail-worthiness of individual freight cars and block trains. In particular, we check:

  • The general condition of the freight cars
  • Loading conditions and safety
  • Management of freight cars and damages.
  • Implementation of brake tests
  • Creation of freight car lists
  • Loading gauge checks
  • Compliance with GGVSEB provisionsAfter damages are found, the freight cars are treated in accordance with AVV provisions. In some cases, the freight car technician also performs rail-worthiness checks. These inspections assess whether the freight cars can reach the factory with their own wheels or need the help of others.The freight car technicians are familiar with the various essential basic set of national and international rules for correctly assessing damages to vehicles and documenting them, such as damage logs.Our freight car technicians provide support during break tests and generate all necessary related documents. They are digitally transmitted in connection with the corresponding retainers and the consorting rail transport companiesObviously, we can also carry out the incidental shunting activities necessary for forming trains.

Diesel Locomotives
From Type Class 66

The heavy, six-axled locomotives are provided with a diesel motor with a power of 2,420 kW (3 245 PS). A three-phase A.C. generator provides six series circuit collector traction motors which work with an axle hung drive on the axles.

The locomotives developed for the British structure gauge are provided with opposite radial guided end axles. The centre axles, on the other hand, can be moved sideways for good curvature.

Class 66 is used throughout Europe in freight transport, mainly by private rail transport companies. Approvals for efficient locomotives exist in Belgium, Denmark, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Norway, Luxembourg, Sweden, and Romania.

Diesel Locomotives
From Type 345 (ex V 60 D)

In 1955, Karl Marx Babelsberg, the VEB locomotive manufacturer, began delivering the V 60 D series for the medium/heavy shunting service. After they were introduced as series 105 and 106 in 1970, they were listed in the stock of Deutsche Bahn

beginning in 1994 as series 345 and 346. The locomotives equipped with a drive power of 478 KW (650 hp) have a transmission with a shunting mode and trip range, and reach a maximum speed of 60 km/h. The drive of the four axles is rod-coupled. The curves down to a minimum radius of up to 80 m, as well as the possibility of passing over a hump with a radius of 400 m in the approach arc and a radius of 300 m in the outlet bend offer favourable conditions for use in all areas of the shunting service as well as in the last mile and connection service.

Diesel Locomotives
From Type 218 / 225

The 218 series belongs to the so-called V 160 family, which were developed during the Deutsche Bahn’s post-war reconstruction program as large single-engine diesel locomotives for the medium/heavy route service.

The 1,840 – 2,060 KW (2,500 to 2,800 hp) four-axle locomotives equipped with electric train heating are still used today in the passenger and freight train service. The 140 km/h diesel locomotives, equipped with end driver’s cabins, have long been regarded as the Deutsche Bahn’s or today’s German railways’ most important diesel locomotives. In the meantime, however, they have been replaced extensively by more modern vehicles. Some of these indestructible locomotives were resold to third parties after appropriate processing.
