Kof: Class 323 at Bischopheim

Engineers machine at Bw Mannheim – does anybody know what they are used for? The unit on the low loader are part of strategic units for repairs and attending accidents. DB I think has recently in the last year commissioned some new units if my memory is right. These units are placed in strategic places on the system. Information supplied by Dave Ward GRES member – thanks
