On March 27th 2012 the Regio Infra Company, as the owner of the railway track Neuruppin - Neustadt (Dosse), began the reconstruction work of the sidings, which was finished on March 30th.

Finally, on April 26th 2012, the first test loading was performed with a locomotive carrying good waggons and two containers. The test run impressively demonstrated the sound functionality and the time-efficiency of the mobile crane that loads goods from the lorry on the train.
Most importantly, the test run has shown to all entrepreneurs in the region of Neuruppin, that a revival of freight train transports on this railway is realistic and feasible. The success is closely connected to the SCANDRIA project.
