Abstract (en)

The system uses one or more trolleys (1) with wheels (6) for running along existing rails (3), crawler tracks (5) for travelling over the sleepers of existing rails, and arched supports (4) with adjustable side legs for the track section (2) being laid. Each arched support is independent of its trolley, and two track-laying trolleys used in conjunction are connected only by the track section being laid. Each trolley, which is operated by remote contol, also has a turntable (7) with a transverse plate wide enough to support at least one sleeper of the track section.
