The Spot Repair System provides for repair of cars in
an efficient central area, with car-handling achieved by rabbits
under push-button control. The system can include integrated
jacking, jib cranes, hose reels and other accessories.
A most significant breakthrough in reduction costs in repair work, the Spot Repair System operates on this basic principle: Move the cars to the repair personnel and material, rather than have repair personnel carry materials to cars needing repairs.
Centralized control. All switches, derails, blue flags, car pullers and jacks are operated from a central control panel by the repair personnel assigned to the track – a separate control panel for each track in the system.
Among the system's principal advantages:
All work is done under direct supervision, with a steady flow of cars assured.
This system creates far better and safer working
conditions for the repair personnel. Tool, equipment and
materials are within easy reach. There are sanitary and washing
facilities and protection from the elements is assured.
