Post subject:  BDCs have been used at DB Bad Albing accident

The recovery of regional trains in Bad Aibling is progressing. The wedged trains are severed and then recovered in parts at the accident site in Bad Aibling. Two special cranes from Fulda ( new Kirow crane type "multitasker 1200". ) and Leipzig are present. The emergency cranes have a lifting capacity of 160 tonnes and 60 tonnes respectively.
Around 20 employees of DB are at the accident site in use, including the Emergency Manager and the crane crews.
Currently, it can be assumed that the recovery of the two trains crash takes at least two days. Then the road will be repaired in the section and the catenary mounted.
