Schedule your onsite trainings and keep up with new regulations
Basic training for operating your railcars is a GATX Railcar Handover Service.
Since our teams are true, enthusiastic railcar experts who happily welcome every invitation for additional training, we are of course available for additional trainings throughout your lease agreements, when and where you need it.
Sharing relevant regulatory news is an essential part of our service to you.
We’re present on all important industry boards, railway and wagon-owners associations in Europe and more. An entire team is dedicated to keep us all informed and shape legislation that makes the shift to rail and ultimately railcar leasing easier.

LOW-NOISE BRAKE AT EUROPEAN LEVEL
Customers of GATX are being notified in a timely manner about the ban of noisy railcars from Swiss tracks (starting from 2020) and from the German rail network starting from the 2020/21 timetable change. Tailor-made solutions are offered to meet both, the commercial and the regulatory requirements. Simultaneously, GATX has been equipping existing freight cars with quiet brake blocks for years now and continues to invest in new, low-noise freight cars… the majority of our fleet already has “whisper brakes”.
DIGITAL AUTOMATIC COUPLING (DAC)
The DAC will likely replace the existing buffer and draw gear on railcars. This DAC enables automatized operational processes like automated coupling with air, electricity and data line. GATX participates in the TIS working group and is a member of the consortium in the BMVI project “DAC Demonstrator train”.
