Cranes for the Rail Industry

Supporting the manufacture and maintenance of locomotives and railway rolling stock.

Street have been manufacturing and installing overhead cranes, portal cranes and special bespoke cranes for the manufacture and maintenance of railways or railway rolling stock for well over 60 years, always with a focus on crane reliability and availability.

For the safe and accurate handling of longer loads such as in railway carriage assembly, tandem lifting is often employed. A host of safety features can be specified such as anti-collision devices, audible alarms and radio control systems to ensure the synchronisation of the two cranes operating together.

The ZX hoist will generally be specified for rolling stock manufacture, maximising availability and minimising the need for maintenance. All crane travel motions are inverter controlled, ensuring safe acceleration and deceleration for load stability and precise low speed final placement.


If you have a requirement for precise and reliable lifting in a rail environment, get in touch with Street crane for a consultation and bespoke quotation.
