Freight Tram-Train To Be Tested In Karlsruhe

The title of this post is the same as that of this article on Railway Gazette.

This is the introductory paragraph.

Trials with a prototype freight tram or tram-train are to start in Karlsruhe and the surrounding area in 2022. The concept is being drawn up with a view to improving urban life by reducing road traffic and the emissions it generates.

There are other cargo trams in Germany, like the CarGoTram in Dresden and I think it is a concept, we’ll see in other places.

In High Speed Urban Freight Logistics By Rail, I wrote about Rail Operations Group’s plans to run freight services between London Gateway and Liverpool Street station.

It may be different technology, but it has similar objectives.
