Zonegreen has completed its first installation for the rail freight sector, equipping Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal (DIRFT) with 5 powered derailers to protect a rail traverser.
The derailers have been fitted on all of the roads approaching the traverser. Whilst positioned here, the derailers will prevent trains rolling into the pit if the traverser rails are not in place; protecting both staff and infrastructure from unauthorised vehicle movement.
The five derailers are controlled via an operator panel situated next to the traverse, located outside the terminal building. The traverser enables freight trains to be moved in a perpendicular direction to the lines, allowing them to return to service after loading/unloading, without the need for a head shunt.
