Getting Derailed Tamping Machines Back on the Track

Commissioned by Lever Engineering, Holmatro supplied an Advanced Rerailing set that offers the right solution when time is limited.


When a track is used many times a day it is important to have a system in place that can make sure that a derailed vehicle can get back on the track in no time.

In this case, the end customer is responsible for the construction of a new railway track in Australia and needed to be self-supporting in case of the derailment of a tamping machine or ballast regulator. Certainly when on a tight time schedule.


A quick and safe response is critical when time is very limited. Quick action is needed when a response is requested to an alert. Lever Engineering was looking for a solution which could reduce the time that was currently spent on getting the end customers’ machines back on track again.


The Holmatro Advanced rerailing set offers a lightweight design that ensures a safe and rapid set construction on site. This in addition to the set’s intuitive components that allows for unique adaptability to the derailed machine and its environment. The system traverse sleds and cylinder adds another layer of risk prevention, allowing the rerailing team to operate from a safe distance and maintain control throughout the operation.
