Classifications

Symbol   Class   Description
OG-A.png
Class A One of more vehicles are higher than is allowed to the loading gauge. Some track restrictions do apply. (lower bridges, platform tracks). OG Trains Class A are NOT announced particularly by neighbouring dispatchers, neither has the dispatchers to announce them to the neighbours.
OG-B.png
Class B These are trains that just go over the loading gauge in WIDTH but to NOT reach into the neighbour track loading gauge. A Class B can pass a Class B OG train. OG Class B trains are NOT announced to the neighbours.
OG-C.png
Class C These are trains that so wide in loading gauge that If they pass a Class B OG train, it will collide. If it meets a Class A or other train than C or D, nothing will happen. Class C trains are announced by TELEPHONE (in addition to ZNP 801?)
OG-D.png
Class D These trains are so wide that ANY neighbour track MUST be clear of vehicles. Some class D trains have special cars that can shift the load sideways on certain spots (bridges, signals) and/or stop/go really slow for a while prepping for/passing the object next to the track. Class D trains come with extensive paperwork. Class D trains are announced by TELEPHONE (in addition to ZNP801)


Graphical visualization of out of gauge loads

Out of gauge train Class A (Lü Anton)

  • The load exceeds the track gauge upwards or downwards.
  • Basically does not affect the adjacent track.

Out of gauge train Class B (Lü Berta)

  • The load reaches at maximum up to the middle of the space between two adjacent tracks.
  • Allows passing on the adjacent tracks of:
    • Trains with normal loads
    • Out of gauge train Class A (Lü Anton)
    • Out of gauge train Class B (Lü Berta)

Out of gauge train Class C (Lü Cäsar)

  • The load reaches over the middle of the space between two adjacent tracks.
  • Allows passing on the adjacent tracks of:
    • trains with normal loads
    • Out of gauge train Class A (Lü Anton)

Out of gauge train Class D (Lü Dora)

  • The load reaches that far into gauge of the adjacent track, that no train movements are possible on the adjacent track.
