Excavation power in the tightest spaces

The Loram Transit Railvac® (TRV) offers similar, robust capabilities as the Loram Railvac® but in a two-car configuration, specifically designed for transit and commuter railroads with lighter axle loads and tighter clearances requirements.

The Transit Railvac is designed with unique, dual-rotating cabs that ensures total visibility of the worksite and safer operations. Capable of rotating 60 degrees in each direction, the cabs offer the ability to utilize one cab for the entire operation without compromising production and visibility. In areas of specialized work on one side of the track, the dual cab feature gives the operator an up-close view of the operation without the operator being on the ground.

Transit Railvac applications include
  • Cribbing and undercutting mud spots
  • Removing fouled ballast and debris from tunnels
  • Cleaning and installing drain tiles and culverts
  • Cross trenching for cables and pipes
  • Removing ballast from bridge decks and grade crossings without removing ties or rail
  • Undercutting switches and diamonds
  • Excavating contaminated materials from yards and stations
  • Yard cleaning and reconstruction
  • Locating and excavating cables without damage


Transit Railvac features:
  • Two-cab design built specifically for transit specialty excavation
  • Versatility for applications including switches, road crossings, bridges, wire pole footings, cable trenches, tunnels, and stations
  • Dual rotating cab design for greater operational effectiveness, visibility and safety
  • Typical results depend on application and material conditions
  •         - Loose, granular material—up to 35 yd3/hr
            - Compacted, moderately fouled—up to 20 yd³/hr
            - Heavily cemented or clay filled—up to 10 yd³/hr
  • Large 40 yd³ material chamber capacity
