Technical specifications of the Bemo Rail shunting locomotives with Internal Combustion Engine (click the arrow to expand)


  • Continuously variable speed control from “0
  • Smooth start off with favourable slip limit because of absence of peak forces.


  • Standard Bemo locomotive control, designed for use under heavy-duty circumstances
  • Vibration- and temperature-resistant
  • Manual and/or radio remote control, if required within ATEX conditions
  • Accelerating and braking according to fixed curves, as a result of which:
    • The rail shunter always behaves and reacts steadily
    • Incorrect control is nearly impossible
    • Any operator should be able to work with the railshunter

 Environmental and health & safety legislation

  • Limited noise level
  • Low fuel consumption
  • Electric or hybrid drive
  • Ergonomical accessibility for operation and service


  • Emergency buttons on all corners of the machine, combined with radio remote control
  • Integration of gas detection into the control unit,when used in ATEX conditions (optional)
  • Security through additional proximity/reflection switches (optional)
  • Excellent overview from the cabin


  • All shunting operations can be performed by one operator
  • Easy to operate control system
  • Clear graphic display for operating status and maintenance (HMI /GUI)


  • High quality components are installed as a standard, such as an A-class engine
  • Overall sprung axle suspension with fully closed reductors, resulting in:
    • Reducing damage to switches
    • Reducing the risk of derailment
  • Long technical life span
  • Short delivery time on spare parts


  • Easily accessible, no special maintenance pit required
  • Daily maintenance can be performed by in-housetechnical service
  • Optimal set-up of intervals depending on the application

Shunting couplers

  • All types of shunting couplers
  • All associated adapters
  • Automatic or non-automatic

Pneumatic systems

  • Equipped with pneumatic system for (wagon) brakes
  • Control of various components
  • Compressor output, reservoir capacity and version are selected depending on the use of the locomotive

Track gauge

  • Standard track gauge of 1435 mm
  • Wide and narrow gauge possible
  • Applicable worldwide

Locomotive range


Bemo Rail offers various types of shunting vehicles, see the image of the range of our vehicles.

We offer three versions: the hydrostatically driven locomotive, the hydrodynamically driven locomotive and the hybrid, all powered by ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) amongst which diesel. The locomotive can be operated either manually or by remote control. Our shunting locomotives can be built with a power of 10kN to 300kN and have a tensile strength varying from 50 to 4800 tons.

In addition to our standard models, we also offer customised shunting solutions. With our in-house engineering department, a fully equipped workshop and full knowledge of rails and wagons, the options are numerous.
