Tikhvin Freight Car Building Plant, based in Tikhvin, Leningrad region, says that the multipurpose gondolas with the Barber high capacity bogie, licensed from US-based Standard Car Plant, are the first to be deployed in the Russian rail network.

Capacity of the multipurpose drop bottom gondola model 12-9853 is 75t, allowing the shipper to transport another 5.5t of cargo and reducing the transport cost of 1t of cargo by 5-8%, says Tikhvin. In addition, the gondola has a life-to-overhaul span of 500,000kms, compared to 210,000 kms with standard freight cars.

Apart from Siberian Coal Energy Company (SUEK), Freight One, Freight Two, Transgarant, Independent Transport Company, Oil Trans Service and &1040;&1054; Tatravagonka (Slovakia) are claimed to have confirmed their interest in deploying Barber bogie cars.

“We are introducing Barber design as an open standard for all freight car manufacturers and with the support of Russian Railways and cargo owners,” said Maxim Kuzemchenko, Tikhvin's Trading House Director.
