BDWM Be8/8 in rescue exercise

filed on: 06.11.2010 (6th Nov 2010)

On the 21st October, rescue services attended to a level crossing incident involving BDWM's Be8/8 number 1, a sister unit and a lorry carrying hazardous material. Number 1 derailed and landed on its side besides the tracks. 300 passengers on board the train had to be rescued. Fortunately it wasn't a real accident but an exercise. For the Be8/8, however, it appears to have been its final moment of fame. Several of the type are now out of use.
