Special vehicles: keeping the infrastructure in good repair.

Building the infrastructure to keep pace with the growing demand for rail transportation is just the first step – because this infrastructure also needs to be maintained on a day-to-day basis. Knorr-Bremse offers a broad-based portfolio in this segment.

There are special vehicles that can inspect the track, repair overhead power lines, grind the rails or clear snow from the track. Track-laying trains put down new tracks or replace ballast, while rescue trains provide assistance in emergencies. Most special vehicles are only produced in small batches, while some are even made as bespoke one-off solutions for highly specific application scenarios. They are indispensable to the operation of rail networks, and operators count on them to deliver maximum robustness and absolute safety.
