Models RW©, SW© and MW©

Flexiwaggon RW© rescue and salvage waggons with their flexible and unique features help every operator fulfil their obligations. Rescue work can take place efficiently and the waggon set can be connected from either direction from the accident site.

In addition to offering personnel an improved work environment, rescue work can be performed quickly and safely. A significant advantage is that it is much quicker to drive on and off rescue vehicles. For crane lorries, drivers can choose front unloading from the waggon onto the railbed or side unloading when the ground by the railway embankment can handle the vehicle’s weight. For example, the Flexiwaggon model SW© is recommended for ambulances needed for emergency transports. These waggons have side unloading ramps that also work with low vehicles, allowing unloading on the closest road for final transport to hospital.

The waggon set can be connected for maximum efficiency at the accident site. Mobile field hospitals, ambulances, fire engines and so on can be connected in the order best suited for the specific circumstances. Flexiwaggon RW© is also adapted for all-terrain vehicles, such as are needed for retrieval of goods.
It also saves time when repairing rail embankments, bridge railings, and other measures requiring excavation equipment and/or crane lorries. The standard Flexi- waggon RW© can handle crane lorry weights of up to
80 tonnes and lifting capacities of up to 220 tonnes.

The Flexiwaggon RW© and SW© are always manufactured in accordance with relevant national safety regulations.

Standard model
FLEXIWAGGON RW© and SW© rescue and salvage waggons

  • Loadable length: 9-18.75 m. Load: 80 tonnes. Load: Rails, upper-edge: 180-230 mm
  • Control of launching, i.e. loading/unloading using button controls.
  • The standard version allows loading and unloading from the cradle holding the vehicle stands to the front and back, and to the right and left sides of the track.
  • WCS – Waggon Control System. This system controls the waggon’s functions and prevents damage by monitoring for malfunctions on the waggon.
  • There are integrated poles for worksite lighting.
  • Electrical outlets for 110/240/400V, 50-60 Hz. Customisation is performed for each market.

Accessory equipment
FLEXIWAGGON RW© and SW© rescue and salvage waggons

  • TCS (Train Control System): Receivers are located in the locomotive with the driver. Information is received from the WCS system, which monitors the waggon’s operation, wheel bearings, deviations in the braking system and other aspects of the waggon. With the TCS, the locomotive driver can control loading and unloading on one, multiple or all waggons in the train set at the same time
  • Remote control: The waggon comes with either wireless or with wired controls for loading and unloading the cradle. The lorry driver, the locomotive driver or other authorized train personnel can work the controls. The remote control also simplifies work by maintenance and service personnel since they can control the cradle from a distance.
  • Wheel stock sensors: The sensor system discovers early overheating in the wheel stock and prevents malfunction.
  • Brake sensors: The sensor system registers when braking effect diminishes and brake components need replacing.
  • Design changes are possible in the form of shorter or longer cradles, wider openings in cradles, length of loading and unloading ramps and other customer- specific needs.
  • Design changes are possible in the form of shorter or longer cradles, wider openings in cradles, length of loading and unloading ramps and other customer- specific needs.

MW© waggons for peacekeeping operations

The flexible and unique features of Flexiwaggon MW© waggons for peacekeeping operations allow intervention forces to complete peacekeeping missions faster and safer. Major advantages include quick transport and quick loading and unloading of rescue and salvage vehicles. When the terrain inhibits side unloading, front unloading allows vehicles to drive off directly onto the railbed/embankment.

  • The Flexiwaggon SW© is recommended for ambulances needed for emergency transports. These waggons have side offloading ramps that also work with low vehicles, allowing unloading onto the closest access road for final transport to hospital.
    The train set can be connected from either direction for optimal efficiency. Mobile field hospitals, ambulances, fire engines, excavators, crawlers, all-terrain vehicles and other vehicles can be connected in the order that offers maximum timesavings.

The Flexiwaggon MW© is adapted for all-terrain vehicles, such as those needed for retrieval of goods and personnel. It also saves significant time when performing rail embank- ments and bridge railing repairs and other measures requiring excavation equipment and/or crane lorries.

The standard Flexiwaggon MW© can handle crane lorry weights of up to 80 tonnes and has a lifting capacity of up to 220 tonnes.

The Flexiwaggon MW© is manufactured and equipped in accordance to customer wishes.

Standard model Flexiwaggon MW© waggons

  • Loadable length: 9-18.75 m. Load: 80 tonnes. Load: Rails, upper-edge: 180-900 mm. Control of launching, i.e. loading/unloading using button controls.
  • The standard version allows loading and unloading from the cradle holding the vehicle stands to the front and back, and to the right and left sides of the track.
