Prototype information: The German State Railroad Company introduced the concept "transfer train" as early as 1928. This is used to designate short freight trains that bring individual cars from industrial railroads, industry sidings or loading ramps to the so-called transfer yards. Several of these short trains are coupled together in these yards to form the long, heavy freight trains that will travel much further, and the freight loads will reach their national and international destinations.
