Operation of “silent wagons”

With effect from 1 January 2020, Switzerland shall apply Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/774 on the reduction of noise from rolling stock. We remind all customers that only consignments loaded in wagons equipped with silent brake blocks will be accepted for transport to or transit through Switzerland. These are wagons which have next to the inscription of the type of the brake additional marks “K”, “L”, “LL”, or wagons with disc brakes, where the letter “D” is indicated.

Model loading of wood

ČD Cargo together with companies Innofreight and Wood & Paper organize model loading of wood into new wagons and onto wagons using Smart GigaWood superstructures for customers who load wood with its destination in the paper mill in Hněvice.

This construction was first used in Sweden and later adapted to the Central European profile. There are ten pairs of stanchions on each article of the wagon, which allow loading of pulpwood with the length of 2.4 - 2.8m. The design of the stanchion superstructure with its largest width of 3.14 m and the same height enables loading of 116 - 129 m3 solid metres of wood mass.

One of the model loadings took place on 6 September 2019 at the station Skalice nad Svitavou.
