The 7182 is made from P460/630 grade steel. Its 14.83m length over buffers allows for space to mount all necessary equipment, such as t-pipes and brake apparatuses. The weight of the car has also been reduced to just 23.2 tons. It is equipped with a hydraulically operated bottom valve and 25-ton enhanced wheelsets, built in accordance with the European standards of freight axle design (ESFA). The 7182 also features a DOT Telematik’s self-sufficient telematics system that tracks and traces the cars.
