Rein it in! 1,000 bogie saddles repaired for freight operator

Rein it in! 1,000 bogie saddles repaired for freight operator
In the rail industry, one of the most important aspects to maintaining high safety standard is regular inspection and maintenance of the rolling stock and tracks. For one freight operator this has included the overhaul of 250 coal wagons that needed new wear plates installing onto the bogie saddles, a task that Sulzer has completed as part of its on-going work in the rail sector. Keeping rail freight wagons in good running order requires the rolling stock to undergo general repairs every ten years or after a predetermined distance in work.
