Since the beginning of the railway era, it has been necessary to clear snow from the tracks. The spectrum of railway service vehicles ranges from simple snow clearing plates to large snow ploughs and heavy-duty snow blowers. For the German Federal Railway, it became necessary to replace the old steam-powered snow blowers starting in the 1960s. Various compact heavy-duty wagons with Beilhack diesel snow blower units were tested the Alps, in the Allgäu region and abroad. A disadvantage of these vehicles was that an additional locomotive was used to drive them. A self-driving heavy-duty snow blower was developed to make snow removal even more efficient. It is approved for a speed of up to 120 km/h for transfers. Three identical twelve-cylinder diesel motors from Daimler are used in the machine. Each one has a power output of 405 kW. This means snow drifts of up to 3 meters can be cleared. A rim that can be rotated by 180° makes it possible to turn on the spot. This means it can master even the most difficult weather conditions.
  • Note: The model can only be used to a limited extent in analogue mode, which is why we recommend digital mode. In analogue mode, the snow blower starts to move, the headlights and the driving sound are activated and the blade wheels turn.
