TCM 60 in motion in Limoges

As part of the programme to modernise the POLT* railway line, our teams are working between Limoges station and Uzerche to completely renew the rails, sleepers and ballast over 44 km.

The TCM 60 factory train, accompanied by its RM 900 ballast cleaning machine, its 5 tamping machines, its 3 resurfacers as well as its road-rail shovels equipped with hydraulic spreaders, renews an average of 1,000 m of track per work period. It is also capable of renewing up to 1,600 m of track under optimal conditions. The renewed track is run the same morning at a speed of 80 km/h, thus enabling our customer to offer an almost normal transport service.
 
The aim of the POLT line is to provide an efficient, reliable line with a high level of service.
 
Thank you to the 300 employees of the consortium led by Eiffage Rail and the 200 SNCF Réseau employees who are working to ensure the continuity of the projects they are responsible for.
