Wagons take to the road

BREMERHAVEN. On behalf of bremenports, heavy-goods operator Kübler removed 28 railway wagons from Columbus Island by road in May. They had been trapped there without a siding after the dismantling of a defective railway swing bridge. Since it is currently unclear when a replacement bridge will be built over the canal, the wagons were driven onto special heavy-duty trailers and transported in convoy via the Kaiserschleuse and the Zolltor Rotersand and placed back on the tracks of the port railway at the head end of Kaiserhafen III.
