The goal is firmly in sight

During the night of 13 to 14 September 2017, the Transrapid TR 09 will arrive at its final destination in Nortrup.

With a total length of 75 metres, the Transrapid is unable to reach its destination as a whole. Classified as a heavy load, the former maglev train will be split into three parts - two compartments and the driver's carriage - in order to make the 60-km journey from Lathen to Nortrup on three heavy loaders. At its new home, the high-tech express train will be converted into new conference and training rooms.

Traffic delays possible: 14/09/2017

The convoy will begin its journey on 13/09/2017 at 10:00 pm in Lathen. Accompanied by the police, the convoy is set to arrive punctually at 6:00 pm in Nortrup. As a result, there may be traffic delays in the surrounding towns on 14/09/2017.Once they arrive at their destination, the individual train parts will be hoisted by the low-loaders and put into position with the help of heavy-duty cranes.
