Renewal and track laying trains

6 renewal and 3 track-laying trains in the GCF fleet.

All distinguished by power, versatility and performance. They include the special "La Meccanica" track-laying train, patented by GCF and designed and built specifically for the construction of High Speed lines.

La Meccanica

A single train for laying new tracks

The special “La Meccanica" track-laying train was developed thanks to GCF’s experience in the railway superstructure sector.

Unique of its kind, it was designed specifically to meet the construction needs of High Speed lines and thanks to the innovative, expert ideas of track laying technicians and workers.

"La Meccanica" responds in full to the objective of maximizing lead times, operating safety and construction quality...

Thanks to this combination of technology and human resources, GCF can lay 16 sleepers per minute (approximately 9 metres of track per minute) and thereby build new tracks at the rate of over 1 km of line per day.
