High Speed Portable Derail

High Speed Portable Derail

A derail is a device that will derail any railroad rolling stock, including mainline locomotives. Employees working on or around the track with nearby rolling stock, must be protected by a derail. As the flange of the train wheel comes in contact with the derail, it lifts the wheel and deflects it away from the rail head, and thus, the wheels are halted by becoming imbedded in the track ballast.
 
The High Speed Portable Derail was tested at 20+ mph with a 6 Axle Locomotive, loaded to 384,000 lbs.
