All Snow Ploughs of the Austrian Federal Railways have been modernized

Following the recent delivery of further roller bearing axles by DLM, the modernization of all 22 snow ploughs is now complete. As can be seen in the picture, the snow ploughs are being pushed by electric or thermal locomotives. The clearing of tracks and platforms (see picture) is fast and efficient. Tracks can be ploughed with up to 60 km/h and for transfers 80 km/h are allowed. The first snow plough on roller bearings has been commissioned on December 21 in 2009.
