Driver's cab, driver's cab or driver's cab is a general designation for a non-driven railroad ( "US") or rolling stock ("UIC") that can operate a trainset from the end opposite the locomotive's location. It can be operated with diesel or electrical drive and enables push-pull operations without the use of an extra engine.
Driving trailers with vapour engines were used in a few cases, in particular in Germany and France (see Voiture État à 2 étages). Taxis in the United States are taxis with a cab similar to normal automobiles, but with a full cab installed in one or both ends. It can be very similar to normal railway wagons, up to the inclusion of a passageway between the wagons, so that it can be used in the centre of a person moving like a normal wagon.
In the United Kingdom, tax trailers may have one or two driver's positions. Locomotives running with a single engine at one end and a cab car at the other end do not need the engine to run to the other end of the line when it reverses course at a terminal station.
Driving trailers may transport passenger, luggage, mail as well as a combined passenger, luggage and post service and, in conjunction with diesels, may contain a HEP motor-generator-kit. Besides the driver's cab, which has all the necessary elements and gages for remote operation of the train, the driving trailers usually have a buzzer, a pipe, a bell or a plow (as required) and all the lamps that would normally be fitted to a train.
It must also be equipped with all necessary communications and security such as GSM-R or the ETCS (European train protection system). Classical steering methods were a multipole wire with bridges between the vehicles. One more recent procedure is the time-division multiplex (TDM) system, which usually works with two (protected) lines.
A number of transit companies in the United States use cab carriages as a routine replacement for normal carriages on board buses. In the case of the Metra company, these automobiles make the car less aerated. In 1960, the Chicago and North Western Railway had 42 driver's cabs constructed according to the Pullman standard, so that the tracks or engines no longer had to be turned.
It was the result of a train service that was already customary on DMUs at the times. Exo, the public transport operator in Canada, uses cab trailers in all its vehicles, with the exception of the electrical multiple-unit train sets, which run as double-ended, semi-permanently connected three-part sheaves. Amtrak also has a number of former Metroliner cab coaches, mainly used for push-pull service on the Keystone Service and New Haven-Springfield Shuttle.
The problem was countered by adding reinforcements in the driver's cabs. These criticisms were reinforced after the 2005 Glendale accident in which a Metrolink hit a Jeep Grand Cherokee at a California railroad overpass. It was a car that was in front of it and the car was stabbed with a knife.
Early in 2015, another crash happened in Oxnard, California, in which one of Metrolink's enhanced "red" cabins at the front of the platoon hit a lorry at an intersection. Amtrak designed its Non-powered Control Unit (NPCU) by Amtrak removal of the propulsion engine, primary engine and drive motor from excess EMD F40PHs.
Steering position remained in place, as did the gear for operating horns, bells and headlights. Subsequently, a bottom and rolling gates for the luggage services were set up, which led to the so-called "Cab-Baggage Cars" or "Cabbages". The six HPCUs converted for the Cascades Pacific Northwest Cascades transit do not have the roller shutters because the Talgo kits they are working on have a luggage car as part of the multiple unit, although the #90230 was recently equipped with these gates.
These types of vehicles are referred to as cab tankers in Great Britain. We have many instances of this car model in use in Europe. Vehicles are driven by classes 21, 27 or 18 electrical engines and run in one unidirection from a car. Before the Second World War, the first attempt in Germany to use tax trailers and remote-controlled steamships was made by the Deutsche Reichsbahn (DRB).
Drivers' driving directions were transferred from the driving trailer to the steam engine by a Chadburnian machinery cable (similar to motor order cables on ships). However, this indirectly operated system was considered unpractical and insecure because, despite the direct braking action of the engineer, there was a risk that the vehicle would still provide "thrust" for some considerable period of intervening and possibly even cause the derailment of the trains.
Experiments to use electrical engines were more encouraging (starting with a modified version of category 04 ), as the engineer could directly steer the engines. It was only after the end of the Napoleonic Wars that the inspection wagon service was gradually adopted, when engines and appropriately fitted wagons were available. Trains are push-pull and were initially restricted to 10 wagons for dynamic management purposes.
It was not until the mid-1990s that long-distance train sets, which have up to 14 wagons and can run at a rate of 200 km/h, were powered by driving trailers. The ICE 2 is a particular case in point, as it can run at up to 250 km/h on the newly constructed high-speed tracks with the driving trailer in the lead. 2.
Only the V43 2xxx models are compliant as they have a unique built-in electronic keypad. 27 Bybdtee driving trailers reached Hungary with the acquisition of the former eastern Germany coach range from DB, the "Halberstadters". Though a V43 3xxx range with a dedicated radio transmitter was presented that is compliant with these cabs, the Halberstadters are seldom used as efficient cabs due to their rarity as side line wagons and are more often considered as normal wagons due to their bike shed.
More wagons are technical separated cab wagons, like the Bdx range, which was part of the MDmot DMU range (now removed from service ), or the Bmxt range, which is part of the BDVmot and BVhmot EMU ranges, but they are regarded and handled as part of their DMU and EMU units respectively.
Éireann runs two categories of counter-train railcars, each equipped with its own steering trailer: The Dietrich (Enterprise Service) with driver's cab with EMD steering position, boot and seats for passengers. However, this caused problems with the 201 series, so that the Mark 3 Generator Transporter has been replacing one of De Dietrich's diesel cars in the line-up since September 2012.
The CAF ( Mark 4 ) has a driver's cab with a reconstructed steering position for the engines, baggage space and twin-engine generators for traction heater. Mark 4 cab cars are equipped with EMD-Lokomotive performance and braking controllers. AAR system is used to steer the engines, which has been adapted by Iarnród Éireann (IÉ) to allow operation of trains with 201 engines in this category.
Éireann previously managed Mark 3 Commodity Coaches from 1989 to 2009: The Mark 3s has a driver's cab with a reconstructed steering position for the engines, baggage area, suspended Cummins motor / alternator for traction heater and seats for passengers. Number 6101-6105, retrofitted from Mark 3 InterCity vehicles for local push-pull traffic. In September 2009, these were retracted following the launch of InterCity Class 22000 railcars.
In those days, there were no actual radio controls for the back engine, so an engine technician had to take place in it and steer the train by following the directions (via an intercom) of the other rider, who stayed in the front and ordered braking and targetting. However, this took until the introduction of the 78-core harness in the seventies, which allowed full radio operation of tax vehicles.
Nowadays, push-pull traction is very widespread and different types of driving trailers are used: The UIC Z1 driving trailer. Driving trailer model MDCVC, with a cab that can be either air-draught or communication. Pilot car of the model Servo Pedal Pierriassato, with low, renovated E464-like or communication cab. Double Klavier two floor driving trailer. Driving trailer model UIC-X. The Vivalto driving trailer.
This type allows complete telecontrol of any type of Italien engine delivered with a 78-core main power cord, with the exception of the UIC Z1, which is used on IC service and can only operate E.402 engines, and the MDVC Diesels Special Edition, which can only operate D.445 engines. While the same operation instructions are used for both thermostatic and electric engines, their meaning changes.
Some EMU/DMU non-motorized unit cab trailers are categorized (in Trenitalia) as Le / Ln XXX, with no significant differences between them and powered unit, except for the absence of motive power. The NS used its coaches ( Dutch: Stuurstandrijtuig) in two different ways. Trailer combinations consist of a single car, two or three intercars and either a 1700 grade electrical engine or an EMU type car (e.g. NS DD-AR).
They are schematically represented as if they were all WWUs, leading to two locomotive formation, often at intermediary locations in the locomotive. Poland uses the word'car sterowniczy', which means quite literally a ''driving trailer''. Schweizer Fahranhänger work in many different configuration. Travel trailer are classed according to the UIC labelling system by the addition of a "t" giving Bt (second class), SBt (second plus baggage), Bt (first plus second class) or Dt (baggage).
Zurich's S-Bahn with Re 450 work in fix consist of Re 450 - AB - Bt, but the wagons and travel tags are marked as wagons. "The regional and S-Bahn train "NPZ" with model 560 usually have a suitable Bt carriage. Old running gear followers, mostly BDt EW I/II and some Dt left over from SBB, can be used with Re 420 and RH Be 540 and some drive powers of privatbahn.
BLS has four groups of trailers: Zentralbahn IBt can operate 101 hours (ex SBB), 110 hours, 140 hours (ex LSE) and the new SPATZ ABe 130. In addition to the ABDts, which work with Be 4/4 511-516, the Rhaetian Railway (RhB) has a group of cab cars that can be used with its Ge 4/4 I, II and III engines.
Matterhorn Gotthard Railway (MGB) has a large number of travel trailer for almost all kinds of drive powers. Trucks have been in service in Great Britain for many years, with the Great Western Railway often using "carriages" in secondary line operation. This enabled a traction engineer to operate the governor and reversing gear of an appropriately fitted engine by remote transmission.
Firefighter stayed on the engine to serve the cauldron and pipe of the engine. Lokomotives were usually clamped between a couple of carriages, so that a total of four could be used. An Open or DBSO standard drivingbrake is a Mark 2 car that has been specifically modified. DVT is a more advanced model of van that has been specifically designed for the luggage compartment and the security area.
DVT was developped from DBSO and initially conceived for use with British Rail Mark 3 and Mk 4 wagons. As a rule, all travel trailer are located on a large part of the previous vehicles. Example for these drive trailer were on some old (now most likely scrapped) rattle wheels together with C- and K-Sets (4 trailers).
Subsequently, the drive trailer from the K-Set was transformed into a normal trailer. The current collectors are placed on the second and third wagons in a unique kit and on the second, third, 6th and 7th wagons in an eight-part combination (2 kits combined). Approximately the third generation of the Sydney trains, Tangaras or T-sets, have control carriages, but are fitted out in such a way that they can provide the trains with power by using a current collector.
The Waratah ( "A" sets) have two travelers ( one at each end ) with powerful semitrailers between the moving and non moving one. The 2100 railcars drive followers, which are placed in a 2-wagon, consisting of a 2000 aggregate, sometimes with a second supporter, in order to assemble a 3-wagon - the train car is placed between the two followers.
By 2018 there are only three of these pendants left, the remainder was scrap. Three-out of twelve engines in the 2000 engine category had the same destiny. Transdev Auckland in Auckland ran 21 DC and four DFT engines (owned by KiwiRail) in push-pull operation with 24 kits of 3-5 SA wagons and one SD cab and control car (ex British Rail Mark 2 wagons converted for on-site operation) in Auckland Transport in Auckland.
