Goud Transport Historic Whitcomb Locomotive

Goud Transport transports historic Whitcomb locomotive for SGB museum

In early November, Dutch operator, Goud Transport complete the move of the historic Whitcomb diesel locomotive  – built for use for the US Army during World War II.

Transported from Antwerp to the Stoomtrein Goes-Borsele (in short: SGB) in Goes. The logistics were carried out by Goud Transport B.V from Waarde, who called in their transport specialist Hans Hoogesteger for the event. With his 4-axle Scania P450 tractor and 4-axle Nooteboom Euro 86-14IFP with 1-axle Interdolly, Hans delivered the 65-tonne locomotive in Goes without any problems. Due to the integrated railway tracks in the floor and ramps of the low-loader there was no need for a heavy crane to unload the locomotive in Goes. This meant a significant reduction in the overall cost of the transport operation.

Worldwide we only know of 10 Whitcomb locomotives and 6 of these are now in a museum. There is only one of them in Europe and that one is now in the SGB in Goes.
