Tunnel Locomotives

SCHÖMA is the undisputed world-market leader for tunnel locomotives. We offer the full spectrum of diesel-powered tunnel locomotives, in the range of 5 to 60 tonnes and with an engine power of up to 400 kW.

SCHÖMA locomotives are customized to meet any project requirements; when performing the technical design, even extreme requirements are considered like: 

  • narrow tunnel cross-sections
  • tight curve radii
  • high performance requirements
  • safety requirements
  • extreme gradients

Platform cars, driven by the locomotive, carry a significant amount of the weight and thereby considerably increase the overall weight of the drive. These types of systems are mainly used for metro projects and street tunnels with steep gradients.

At any time we are pleased to give you the advice you need and offer project-specific solutions.
