This system has its advantages on extreme inclines of up to 30 degrees and large transport weights of up to 48 t.
The train set, consisting of drive and brake wagons as well as transport wagons, is guided in a derailment-proof manner on the easily mountable stretchers.
The derailment-proof rack-and-pinion locomotive can be used both on closed tracks and as a climbing aid for normal mine railways equipped with flanged wheels. However, the transport system can just as easily be converted into an overhead monorail. The drive unit can then be suspended from a rail and used on other lines for transporting loads or passengers. This makes the rack-and-pinion locomotive particularly interesting for use in coal mines where very heavy equipment has to be transported on a regular basis.
