Avoiding Rust and Erosion in Winter

Rust and erosion love icy railways in the winter but the wrong anti-icing products can cause all kinds of problems for you.

Train doors running gear can become blocked.

Anti-icing salts can blow away in the wind.

Floors and surfaces can become stained.

Concrete and steel can corrode.

With all that to worry about, it is vital that you choose a de-icer with built-in corrosion inhibitors to prevent any long-term damage to rolling stock and stations.
