SCI Verkehr’s MultiClient Study “Push-Pull trains – European market trends” offers a comprehensive insight into the structure, fleets, volumes and development trends in the European market for push-pull trains. This is the first time that SCI Verkehr has focused on these two asset types in a MultiClient Study due to their close technical and operational links.

Their operation is particularly advantageous in cross-border traffic, for the growth of which there are numerous initiatives in Europe. Their modularity and flexibility in use also make push-pull trains interesting for private investors and operators. Push-pull trains are therefore an important piece of the puzzle for future development in European long-distance transport.
