DESIGN IMPROVEMENTS IN TRACK MAINTENANCE MACHINES AND HYDRAULIC EQUIPMENT FOR USE IN COLD CLIMATES

SOVERSENSTVOVAT' PUTEVYE MASINY I GIDRAVLICESKIJ INSTRUMENT DLJA RABOT ZIMOJ

In the past few years, the SZD has carried out railway construction work in northern and eastern areas of the country where severe climatic conditions make work of this type extremely difficult. On some sections of the Baikal-Amur line, the ground thaws out for only 70 days in the year and this is not sufficient time to carry out track laying and ballasting work. Therefore, some of this work must be carried out in winter weather conditions and special machines are required for this purpose.
