DOUBLE-DECK STEERING CARS

« previous next »

Steering cars make the train dispatch considerably shorter and facilitate the transport on Finnish tracks.

The steering cars are new members of the Transtech product family. The vehicles allow trainsets to be driven from both ends without the necessity to change the locomotive. At the terminal station, the driver just moves from the locomotive cab to the steering car cab and the trainset can draw out in the opposite direction almost immediately.

The steering cars offer the passengers as comfortable and safe environment for their travelling as the double-deck coaches do. The comfort is not affected, whether the trainset is pulled or pushed by the locomotive.

The vehicles are designed as pressure-tight and they feature excellent thermal insulation; they are intended for operation in the demanding climate of the Nordic countries down to -35° Celsius.
