Home > MUs > RM3000

RM3001 to RM3025

  • DMU-1
  • Quantity purchased: 25
  • Fisrt year: 1959/60
  • Power: 2x110 KW
  • Manufacturer: Uerdingen

  • All units are out of service except RM3009 currently preserved in Afyon (confirmed April 2003)


These units are nothing less than the famous German Schienenbus purchased second hand by TCDD from DB in 1989. They are all of type VT98 whith two Büssing motors. These railcars where presumably overhauled by Talbot prior to delivery.

The same order included 15 trailers and 25 driving trailers. One railcar could pull two trailers.


The numbers are from the excellent German website www.roter-brummer.de which has a comprehensive database of all Schienenbuses.
