In the case of used locomotives, it is possible to try them out first, in order to be able to assess whether they fit into the loading process. After all, the better the vehicle fits, the more efficient the loading process.

Rental prices depend on the desired version (options), duration, interest and depreciation. Preventive and corrective maintenance is usually included in a rental agreement, so that the operational costs are known in advance.

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



  • Standard Bemo locomotive control, specifically designed for use under heavy-duty
  • Trembling- and temperature-resistant
  • Manually and/or radio remote controlled, if required with explosion proof encapsulation.
  • Accelerating and braking according to fixed curves, as a result of which:
    • Always very steady behaviour (reaction) of the rail shunter
    • Incorrect control is virtually impossible.
    • Consequently any operator can work with the rail shunter.


Environmental and health and safety legislation

  • Limited noise level
  • Very low fuel consumption
  • Clean diesel engines
  • Electric or hybrid drive
  • Ergonomic accessibility for operation and service



  • Emergency buttons on all corners of the machine, especially in combination with radio remote control.
  • Integration of gas detection into the control unit, when used in Ex-zones (optional)
  • Security by means of additional proximity/reflection switches (optional)
  • Excellent overview from the cabin


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



  • High quality components are installed as standard, such as A-class engines.
  • Overall sprung axle suspension with fully closed reductors, resulting in:
    1. Reducing damage to switches
    2. Reducing the risk of derailment
  • Long technical lifetime
  • Short delivery times on parts



  • Easily accessible, no special lubrication pit required
  • Daily maintenance can be performed by in-house technical service
  • Intervals are set up as optimally as possible, depending on the application


Shunting couplers

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


Pneumatic installations

  • Equipped with pneumatic installation for (wagon) brakes.
  • For the control of various components.
  • Compressor output, tank capacity and version are selected according to the use of the locomotive.


Track gauge

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

Sale and leaseback locomotives

Rail shunter

Besides renting, there is also the possibility of sale and leaseback constructions. Bemo Rail will buy the vehicle and if necessary will overhaul or modernise it, after which it will be let back for a longer period.

Please contact us without any obligation to discuss the possibilities. We will be pleased to make a suitable proposal on the basis of your wishes.

Locomotive range

Bemo Rail offers various types of shunting vehicles, view the locomotive range of our vehicles. Thanks to our in-house engineering department, a fully equipped workshop and the necessary knowledge of rails and wagons, the possibilities are numerous.

For example, you can choose from various drive options such as hydrostatic or hydrodynamic drive with diesel engine, or an electric or hybrid drive. The locomotive can be operated manually, but also 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 customized shunting solutions.
