Patentes Talgo Rolling Stock, Rolling Stock Maintenance Equipment and Gauge-Changing Equipment

Patentes Talgo specialises in the design, manufacture and maintenance of railway rolling stock (regional, long distance, intercity and high-speed trains), rolling-stock maintenance equipment (under-floor wheel lathes and measuring equipment) and systems for gauge changing.

Spain: Patentes Talgo, parent company and head of the group

The company has head offices, five maintenance workshops and two factories.

Talgo trains provide day-time intercity services between the main Spanish cities; high-speed services to Seville, Malaga, Valladolid and Barcelona; night-time services for transverse distances in Spain (Barcelona-Cadiz, Barcelona-Malaga, Barcelona-Granada, Madrid-Coruña, Madrid-Pontevedra and Barcelona-Coruña); and international services from Spain to Paris, Geneva, Zurich, Milan and Lisbon.

Integral maintenance for all Talgo trains is carried out in five main workshops located in Madrid (two), Barcelona (two) and Malaga, including day and night-time and high-speed trains that are used for commercial services.

At the Madrid and Rivabellosa plants, manufacturing activities for trains, locomotives and carriages are carried out, as well as manufacturing of bogies and train wheels. Talgo also manufactures its own maintenance equipment, including pit wheels, measuring equipment for wheel parameters, calibres and shunting cars.
