Wiring trains

Rail (UK) - - Special Report -

The wiring train suc­cess­fully de­ployed on the Ed­in­burgh-Glas­gow Im­prove­ment Pro­gramme al­lows wiring to be car­ried out around four times faster than a con­ven­tional process.

The ad­van­tage of the sys­tem is that the cate­nary and con­tact wire can be run out to­gether at ten­sion.

Also, the train splits and the reg­is­tra­tion ac­tiv­i­ties can then be fol­lowed up af­ter wiring, such that a com­plete wire run can be handed back avoid­ing mul­ti­ple vis­its.

Ad­di­tion­ally, the train can be used to in­stall can­tilevers and can run an­cil­lary wires such as an earth wire or feeder, and as such pro­vides a com­plete elec­tri­fi­ca­tion wiring so­lu­tion.

The Al­stom wiring train is a sig­nif­i­cant step for­ward in high out­put elec­tri­fi­ca­tion progress. The wiring train also con­trib­utes to Al­stom’s com­mit­ment to make rail­way con­struc­tion safer by re­duc­ing the amount of work­ers track­side.
