Tracklaying Equipment

Cowans Sheldon track laying equipment can be used on either single or multi-track systems. The equipment includes track panel gantry machines, twin jib track laying and long welded rail transportation and handling systems.

Rerailing equipment complements our range of recovery cranes. Lightweight, compact and easy to use, it is an ideal choice for difficult recovery operations.

Single Line Gantries. Cowans Sheldon TPG-18 single line gantries operate in pairs and are designed to relay a single line track or one of several tracks where only a single line possession is possible. Gantries are conveyed to site on a special stable wagon with the sleeper or panel train, and once at site are self deployed to run on pre-positioned long welded rails.
