Sale, dismantling and disposal

You want to or have to part with your rolling stock?

We can help you sell, dismantle and dispose of disused rolling stock and their components. We can also offer you guarded stabling facilities for your rolling stock.

As a result of seasonal production cycles, long scheduling breaks often apply for some wagon types or traction stock. Local stabling of these vehicles brings with it a high risk of vandalism damage, the repair of which is complex and costly.


Our comprehensive services day and night

  • Prolonged parking for your rolling stock on over 70 km of track across Germany (indoor stabling also possible depending on availability).
  • Customised service packages for the value conservation of the parked rolling stock.
  • Guarded by security personnel and state-of-the-art CCTV technology.
  • Service packages for placing the rolling stock back into Service.

Selling railway vehicles requires a permanent presence on the market, knowledge of buyers and market prices. Take advantage of our many years of experience in deciding whether to place the vehicle on the national or international market.
