Head on collision between two trains.
We were instructed on behalf of a rail road company in relation to a collision between two trains at the shunt yard in Venlo. A locomotive collided head on with the loaded rear wagon of a cargo train. Due to the collision, the locomotive came up at the rear and the wagon was pushed under the locomotive and derailed. Subsequently the locomotive penetrated the first container. The locomotive was seriously damaged on both sides. Also the cargo train sustained significant damages. Surveys were conducted on site and extent of the damage and estimated repair cost were reported.
