DVB "CarGoTram" 2001+2021+2022+2023+2002, Dresden-Trachenberge, 2000-11-16. The 5-car train is about 60 m long (as much as four T4D cars or two NGT6). Each car is shorter than a T4D, probably for reasons of axle loading.

The CargoTram concept of moving freight by tram is not an entirely new idea, but this modern incarnation is certainly breaking new ground for the modernity and frequency. Running through the city in Dresden between Volkswagen plants this system is clearly advertised and promoted, on the notice boards it is announced as VWBahn and timings are given, they are normally announced up to twenty minutes prior to arrival. They run in Dresden.
