Feuerwehr Frankfurt a.M. Metro rescue
In Frankfurt there are several metro and railway lines. Because they are going underground on many places the Fire Brigade had a problem to reach accidents in the tubes.
They made up a plan to built a Rescue truck which could drive on normal roads, but also had a mechanisme on board to drive on a railroad.
This special vehicle is built on a Iveco truck.
