Track renewal and cleaning in one pass with only one machine

These maintenance works normally take place in two separate steps. A ballast cleaning machine cleans the ballast, and then a track relaying train renews the track. In the past, two weekend track possessions were often reserved to complete this job.

With the RUS 1000 S, we combine two separate tasks, track renewal and ballast bed cleaning, into one machine. Incorporating two stages of work into a single process offers a major advantage: fewer operational hindrances as a result of simplified worksite logistics. Thanks to the RUS 1000 S, less time is required for any track possessions. Plus, it can exchange and rehabilitate more kilometres of rail while the duration of the possession remains the same. Another typical approach is to work in cycles during overnight track possessions. During the day, the tracks are open for passenger traffic. The RUS 1000 S is the ideal machine for this approach: trains can immediately travel on the rehabilitated track at speeds of up to 60 km/h.
