Remarks & Notes 
Moving liquid iron.... In front of the Unesco World Heritage "Ironworks Völklingen" SBB Cargo 203 652-3 and DB 294 954-3 are shunting different freight cars around the former steel mill. The SBB Cargo locomotive has some so called Torpedo cars attached. These heavy load freight cars are used to move liquid iron (temperature approx. 1400°C / 2550°F) from one factory to another. The DB locomotive meanwhile is moving end products.
