Vehicle Loading

“Welcome at the UEX!” Our crew receives you with a smile a the loading terminal. At the check-in in the (early) afternoon our local staff provides you with all  details and information about the further process. The vehicle loading on the motorail wagons is going on normally roundabout 2 hours before departure of the Urlaubs-Express.

The couchettes and sleeping cars wait ready for boarding at the platform, while the vehicle loading goes on. Please pay attention to the displays and speaker announcements, because there might be changes due to operational reasons.

Once the train ist ready for boarding, passengers have the opportunity to leave and re-enter the train, i.e. to enjoy some shopping in the station area. Please make sure that you are back in your compartment a couple of minutes before the scheduled departure of the train.

After arriving at your final station, the motorail wagons maybe have to be shunted before unloading can start. After that the UEX-Crew wishes you a “Happy Holiday”!”
