Locomotive shunters made to measure

When the versatility of a road-railer isn’t required or it simply has to be a locomotive, then SCT-RAIL and the ZAGRO Group can help with that too.  Thanks to lean structures and a high level of vertical integration, GMEINDER designs and builds locomotives precisely tailored to the requirements of the specific application. These locomotives are not off the shelf but customised.

First, it involves the construction of new diesel locomotives with hydrodynamic power transmission. As a future-oriented company and with a view to e-mobility, versions with electrical power transmission and other energy sources (hybrid, purely battery) were also developed.

Steelwork locomotives

The structural basis of our heavy shunting locomotives is our platform for the steelwork locomotives. These two- (D25 B), three- (D60 C) and four-axle locomotives (D75 BB) are tailored to the harsh operating conditions in steelworks and other industrial operations. The construction ensures high pulling power and robustness, the maximum speed corresponds to the requirements of a pure shunting locomotive.

Many components (e.g. wheel sets, brake panel, driver’s cab and vehicle control system) are identical in all locomotives. This makes operation and maintenance easier even with heterogeneous fleets.

Additional equipment such as radio remote control, automatic coupling, air conditioning and automatic start / stop system are optionally available for all locomotives.

Narrow gauge locomotives

We design our narrow gauge locomotives either as centre cab locomotives or with cabs at both ends (D75 BB-SE). The hydrodynamic power transmission with cardan shafts and final drives is particularly suitable for very small gauges (750/760 mm). The power, maximum speed, weight and clearance gauge of the locomotives are optimally adapted to the operating conditions.

Work locomotives for local transport companies

Whether for towing broken trains or for maintenance work on the infrastructure: Locomotives with an independent energy supply are required in such cases. In addition to the light versions of the D25 B and D75 BB centre cab locomotives, individual designs as special vehicles are possible.
