Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19828878A1] The method involves bringing near rail vehicles (Z2) following rail vehicles which are ahead only up to stopping distance (BA2). The vehicles (Z1,Z2) are virtually coupled and moving together but independently from each other forward using a distance safety device (AS) arranged at the vehicles. The virtually coupled vehicles are treated as one vehicle bond by a rail track unit (E). The head forms the first vehicle from the vehicles moving ahead and the end forms the vehicle from the following vehicles. Preferably, more than two following vehicles or vehicle bonds can be virtually coupled to an overall vehicle bond.
