Are you heading to Railway Interchange?

Railway Interchange is a huge exhibition - so you should make sure that Unipart Rail is on your 'must' list to visit. There are good reasons for this…

For years we have been delivering technical rail expertise using our Supply Chain and Product skills. Skills that mean that every innovative product we bring to market optimizes cost, reduces risk and increases performanceWith our recent acquisition of Pennsylvania based Westcode Inc. and Unipart Dorman’s successful Wayside signal journey in North America, we are now engaged with the American Railroad industry and are introducing our wider range of innovative solutions that help our customers save money, perform better and reduce risk.

Some of our products on display will include:

Track Circuit Assistor (TCA) – Innovation in safety

Track circuits affected by rust is not normally a problem for heavy freight trains, but lighter passenger trains and DMUs do not have enough weight to break through the rust layer, and in certain cases this can lead to a train not being detected by the signalling system. Having a TCA fitted not only improves safety and reliability of train detection but also reduces the likelihood of costs associated with delays caused by non-shunting of circuits and is simple to install.

TCA is having increased interest as a solution to track circuit shunting problems from passenger rail operators in the USA.
