The wheeled vehicles owned and used by a railroad or motor carrier. In the rail transportation sector, rolling stock refers to both powered and non-powered railway vehicles, such as locomotives, freight, and passenger cars (or coaches), and non-revenue carriages.
Passenger vehicles can be powered or unpowered, single or numerous units, and self-propelled. A train is a group of connected railcars (this term applied to a locomotive is a common misnomer).
The term uses the word stock to refer to an inventory. Rolling stock is regarded as a liquid asset, or one that is near to being liquid, because the worth of the equipment may be easily evaluated and transferred to the buyer without incurring significant costs or delays.
In contrast, fixed stock (infrastructure), which refers to all of the track, signals, stations, additional buildings, electrical lines, etc. needed to run a railway, is a general phrase for all of these items.
The Angola Rolling Stock Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2024 to 2030.
The final three of ten locomotives purchased by the Angolan government from the People’s Republic of China arrived in the country, with the goal of improving the performance of the Luanda railway (CFL).
The diesel engines, known technically as Multiple Diesel Units (MDU), are made up of four carriages that can carry 696 passengers and were purchased from the Chinese company China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC).
“These three units will join the other four that are already operating in Luanda, bringing maintenance kits for the next two years.”
These locomotives will strengthen and improve urban mobility in Luanda province, connecting the city’s downtown to the new International Airport in the future.
Seven of the ten locomotives acquired will be used by Luanda Railways, while the remaining three will be used by Benguela Railways.
