DB Cargo organizes the delivery of humanitarian aid to Ukraine. The Railway Bridge is operated, in particular, by Vectron, which received a special design #WeStandWithUkraine. Now a model of the H0 locomotive has been created. The sale of it will help support Ukraine.

Special version of Vectron model

This is reported by the railway magazine Railway Supply with reference to nakolei.

The German freight carrier DB Cargo launched the first supply train to Ukraine in early March. This was the beginning of the so-called “Railway Bridge” project, created jointly by DB Cargo and DB Schenker.

The established road and rail logistics network made it possible to transport thousands of tons of humanitarian aid. Several DB Cargo locomotives have a special livery.

“100 euros for each locomotive model sold will be donated to the Deutsche Bahn Foundation, which supports people fleeing the war and provides targeted assistance. Deutsche Bahn has created a logistics network to deliver aid from Germany directly to Ukraine. To achieve this goal, the logistics teams of DB Cargo, DB Schenker and DB Transa-Spedition work hand in hand. Urgently needed goods such as food, drinking water, warm clothes, sanitary ware and medical supplies are delivered directly to the country by freight train over the DB railway bridge.” the message said.
