Hopper wagon under development

The 75 m³ Tanpps wagon would have central and lateral discharging ports to provide flexible unloading options, enabling the design to replace the current Tanoos and Tadns types. The DRRS 25L bogie with a compact brakes would have anti-corrosive properties suited to transporting salt.
