Track Maintenance

New and effective systems for efficient and effective ballast replacement and subgrade refurbishment/track renewal.

Standard gauge area:

We use modern excavating machines for renewal with ballast replacement and, if necessary, substructure renovation. Used materials are transported onto crawler tracks by loading wagons. New material can also be efficiently transported to the construction site using loading wagons. Rail cranes are also an option. We carry out complete switch and track renewal with integrated ballast cleaning. Ballast recovery is typically 50% when it comes to switches and up to 70% for tracks. Ballast recycling saves resources and makes logistics easier.

Metre gauge area:

Track-bound excavation including loading materials into excavation wagons allows for the renewal of tracks and switches. If required, special machines can be used to excavate rock (bed-lowering). Rail cranes are also an option. Rail-bound track renewals using our RM76 CAPRICORN ballast cleaning machine and MUNGG gantry crane system allows for efficient track renewal during the night. Ballast cleaning also enables an increase in output per metre and reduces the need for ballasts.

What we can do for you:

  • Sophisticated machine technology, optimised construction site planning, and synergy use
  • New and adaptable concepts
  • Well-practiced and specialised teams of track builders and machine operators mean a minimum staff deployment on site
  • Modern machinery with the latest generation of high-performance machines
  • Personal contact to discuss the exact starting position and individual needs
  • A flexible and individual approach for different construction site requirements
  • Resource bundling and continuous improvement processes


  • Our metre gauge range machines are suitable for very narrow radii, steep inclines, and also for rack and pinion tracks in the majority of cases
  • A well thought-out and conclusive concept to ensure you are truly satisfied
  • Efficient resource use thanks to the direct separation of good and worn ballasts
  • Quick installation of foundation layers and PSS materials (gravel sand), for example
  • Work can be carried when you are closed for the night
  • Market leader in technology
  • Economic and ecological factors are taken into consideration
  • High-quality end products
