Explanation: Sorry to be so late in replying to this one, but I was taking a break.
This is what it is known as in the UK; I should know, because I worked for some years in exactly this line.
In those days there were "Engine Diagramming", "Passenger Rolling Stock" and "Freight Rolling Stock" diagramming sections, and "Drivers' and Guards' Rosters" sections. "Rolling Stock" covers all manner of wheeled vehicles on the railways, and is only differentiated by being passenger carrying, freight carrying or motive power and special-purpose vehicles. The exact divisions vary from one railway administration to another, but the principle is the same; I think "Komp." is probably indeed "consist" (US) or "formation" (UK), as suggested by cmj_trans.
