Transporting trams and trains, including loading and unloading these delicate machines, is a specialised trade. The “butterfly ramp” is used to do this safely and easily.
This ramp does look unusual at first glance. Fully extended, the functionality becomes clear. The ramp is extended in no less than four stages and brought to the desired length with separate rail elements. In this way, the slope angle for trains can be made as small as possible.
