Modalohrs are specialized railroad cars for carrying road trailers and road tractors on the AFF route from France to Italy and Luxembourg to the French border with Spain and vice versa; there are plans to expand this service. This articulated railroad car consists of two low-floor decks, resting on a single Y25 jacobs bogie in the middle and on two Y33 bogies on the extreme ends. Using standardized bogies resulted in lower maintenance costs compared with the similar rolling highway concept. The deck between the bogies (trucks) pivots (swings) 30°, allowing the trailers to be loaded from the sides. For details see the official sites or. The cars are built by Lohr Industrie.
