Wabtec Positive Train Control PTC products Portable Derail

Portable Derail

A derail is a device that will derail any railroad rolling stock, including mainline locomotives. Employees working on or around the track with nearby rolling stock, must be protected by a derail. As the flange of the train wheel comes in contact with the derail, it lifts the wheel and deflects it away from the rail head, and thus, the wheels are halted by becoming imbedded in the track ballast.

Protection Relays

Protection relays are often the last barrier to protect rolling stock and trackside equipment in the event of upstream protection system failure. They do not require auxiliary supply. Their mechanical life of 100 million operations exceed train life.

wabtec transit Positive Train Control PTC products R-1100 Railgear

R-1100 Railgear

G & B Specialties Model R-1100 railgear is designed for vehicles with GVWR”s 33,000lbs and larger. The R-1100 front railgear utilizes the vehicle’s front suspension and the vehicle’s frame to lift the front wheels off the track. Attaching to the vehicle’s front suspension and frame makes this design more advantageous for the proper support of the vehicle. The dual scissor rear railgear attaches to the truck’s frame behind the spring hangers. The scissor action of the rear railgear makes it possible for the rear railgear to be moved along both the X and Y plane. This design makes for a more speedy operation of getting the vehicle on track and off track. With G & B New R-1100 Railgear, there are no limits imposed. If the vehicle can support the load, so can the railgear. G & B Specialties R-1100 Railgear has two hydraulic cylinders on both the front and rear units, providing power to spare under full vehicle capacity. On rail, the vehicle’s front wheels are raised approximately 2” above the rail head. Structural members are of carbon steel. Hardened steel castings are used in the making of the 16” wheels.
