High-speed freight trains

In ad­di­tion to in­no­va­tive train con­cepts for pas­sen­ger trains, DLR is al­so look­ing in­to the pos­si­bil­i­ties of mak­ing freight trans­port more time-ef­fi­cient by us­ing high-speed trains. The Next Gen­er­a­tion Train (NGT) con­cepts are now be­ing ex­pand­ed to in­clude a freight train vari­ant called NGT CAR­GO, a dou­ble-deck­er con­cept, which will be able to trans­port goods at speeds of over 200 kilo­me­tres per hour.

In addition to innovative train concepts for passenger trains, DLR is also looking into the possibilities of making freight transport more time-efficient by using high-speed trains. The Next Generation Train (NGT) concepts are now being expanded to include a freight train variant called NGT CARGO, a double-decker concept, which will be able to transport goods at speeds of over 200 kilometres per hour.
