CEBX 800 en Amérique du NordEdit

Le plus grand wagon de transport exceptionnel en service, appartenant à la société ABB, porte l'immatriculation CEBX 800, et est utilisé en Amérique du Nord. Construit par la société Krupp AG, il est doté de 36 essieux (18 pour chaque moitié). Chaque moitié comprend 9 bogies reliés entre eux par un système complexe de balanciers. Sa tare (masse à vide) est de 370 tonnes. Lorsqu'il est vide, ce wagon mesure 70.6 m de long. Il peut porter une charge de 34.5 m de long et 852.3 tonnes. Par comparaison, un wagon couvert classique n'a qu'un seul bogie de deux essieux à chaque extrémité, mesure une quinzaine de mètres et transporte une charge qui n'excède pas 80 tonnes[7].
