Specialist workshops: always well maintained, always safe

We deliver our services safely and accurately – with highly trained staff, state-of-the-art technology and a fleet of 239 locomotives and 2,904 freight cars. First-class rail vehicle maintenance with as little downtime as possible is the only way to guarantee maximum safety and continuous use. This not only reduces your costs, but also ensures high availability.

To fulfil this mission, Captrain operates six specialist workshops in Basdorf (Wandlitz), Bitterfeld, Bochum, Bremen, Dortmund and Pirna, which also provide their complete range of services to external railway companies.

Comprehensive service of the highest standard

Our specialist workshops offer a comprehensive service of the highest technical standard and have the necessary equipment and specialist technology to maintain rail vehicles.

Our experts not only perform scheduled general inspections and revisions, but also repair any faults or damage and replace or upgrade components, such as motors, wheelsets, brake systems and gearboxes. The service portfolio of our specialist workshops also includes the modernisation and conversion of diesel and electric locomotives, motor coaches and freight cars.
Should it not be possible to deliver your rail vehicle to one of our workshops, we also have mobile deployment teams who will be happy to undertake repairs at your premises. It goes without saying that all our specialist workshops operate in accordance with recognised procedures.
