DRS takes delivery of 25 new JNA-Z box wagons

A fleet of 25 brand new JNA-Z box wagons, from VTG Rail UK, has entered traffic.

The wagons were built by WH Davis at its Shirebrook facility and will be operated by Nuclear Transport Solutions’ (NTS) rail division DRS.

The new wagons are soon to enter traffic. Each wagon’s gross laden weight is 101.6 tonnes, and the tare weight is 24.2t meaning that the payload is 77.4t.

Gottfried Eymer, NTS Managing Director for Rail, said:  “These new wagons are an excellent addition to our portfolio and will enable us to provide new services to our customers.

“These are very exciting times, and the wagons offer a huge amount of flexibility, not to mention that each train we operate can take up to 60 lorries from the roads and offer CO2 savings of 76% when compared to road transport.”

The new wagons are being hired via a wet-lease, meaning that VTG Rail UK will also provide maintenance.
