Unimog Shunts Construction Equipment by Rail Through Swiss Alpine Tunnel


During repair work to the Cassanawald Tunnel on the San Bernardino Pass, a Mercedes-Benz Unimog is being used to shunt an unusual configuration of construction equipment on railway freight wagons.

The Road-rail Unimog U 406, built in 1971, has been upgraded to Euro 4 emission standards. Acting as a shunter locomotive, it pulls the heavy construction train weighing 60 t through the 1,2 km long Alpine tunnel.
