VR Track’s ‘Roope’ rail handling system is a set of wagons designed for distributing new rails and collecting old rails.
The wagon set consists of a loading and unloading unit and 9 rail wagons. We have one loading and unloading vehicle and three separate 9-wagon transportation sets.
A single wagon set can load a maximum of 4500 kilometres of rails. The rail lengths suitable for handling range from approximately 20 to 150 metres. The possible rails sizes are UIC/K 43, 54 and 60. The system can unload the rails either to one side of the track, in the middle or on both sides.
