German term or phrase: Transportplatte
Without context, I'm not even sure how directly this is related to the locomotive (part thereof or only used for shipping or parts delivery). The best bet so far, as far as I can see (although in no way relating to railways), is transport sealing device: http://www.leica-microsystems.com/pdfs.nsf/(ALLIDs)/8ECCF640...$FILE/Leica_IP_cartridge_cleaning_EN_DE.pdf.pdf

reinforcement/support plate for shipping
Explanation:
This is an item commonly used in shipping assemblies/machines which are not stable until they are 'installed'.
The fact that it should not be re-used is a clue that it could be damaged itself during transport.
