TWENTY-FIVE YEARS OF ON-TRACK RAIL INSPECTION AT THE SNCF; A NEW GENERATION OF RAIL INSPECTION VEHICLES

25 ANS DE CONTROLE DES RAILS EN VOIE A LA SNCF. UNE NOUVELLE GENERATION DE VEHICULES D'AUSCULTATION

After reference to the characteristics of the SNCF's first two track inspection vehicles, the authors describe two new ultrasonic detection cars with mini-computers to process the data: they are the SNCF V 3 inspection coach and the self-propelled VUR 404 vehicle supplied by Matix. In two years a new two-unit self-propelled vehicle with a travelling speed of 140 km/h, an operating speed of 40-50 km/h and selective fault detection built by the SNCF and Matix Industrie in collaboration, will be put into service.
