Glatttalbahn, Opening of section 1A2
Section 1A2 of Glatttalbahn has opened for regular service.
Contact Wire Grease Appliance
While inserting the contact wire into the conductor rail, grease is applied to the grooves to ascertain contact and to ease the process. A new hydraulic device provides the appropriate quantity of grease irrespective of working speed.
Room for Crane Runway over Electrified Track
Over one of the tracks in the Brig Train Shed the overhead contact line is mounted at maximum height, and sideways removed from the track axis, to make room for a crane runway above the vehicle roofs. Transition of contact wire height and stagger is made by a short portion of pre-bent conductor rail.
test-site and vehicle shed
Our new test site is ready. Samples as long as 4.50 m can be tested with a tensile force of up to 20 tons.
