Excursion Train Formation Facility ZBA Halle (Saale)
In July 2018 the freight train yard in Halle was completed, including the new train formation facility. After further upgrades and expansion it is now one of the most state-of-the-art facilities for freight transport in all of Europe, including fully automatic control systems and braking technology for guide tracks. The rail cars are coupled and uncoupled by hand. The goal of the upgrade is to increase the capacity of the Halle hub. Within an hour 120 rail wagons are rearranged and sent on their way towards Berlin, Munich or southeastern Europe. During the tour the development of the freight yard and the technical processes of the train formation facility will be explained.
