FASTER RERAILING OF RAILWAY STOCK BY DEVELOPMENT OF NEW VEHICLE TYPES

BESCHLEUNIGUNG DES AUFGLEISENS VON EISENBAHNFAHRZEUGEN DURCH ENTWICKLUNG UND EINSATZ NEUER FAHRZEUGE

Increasing rail traffic means more heavily-worked lines, and this in turn calls for new rerailing equipment and methods for faster clearing of the tracks after derailments and other mishaps. After a resume of existing procedures, the Author describes the various types of road and rail vehicles used for rerailing, and points out the advantages of two-way vehicles for this purpose. A rerailing vehicle developed at the Minden Experimental Station of the German Federal Railway, and now in service, is described.
