About the trade show

The purpose of this project is to define the requirements for a gauge changeover system while taking into account existing solutions with a focus on technical, economic and logistical aspects as well as the benefits for operators and railways. The project is important for development in passenger and freight transport and facilitates interoperability by offering technical solutions to help overcome technical differences between rail networks with different track gauges. It should also set new technical and operational standards for the interfaces between railway lines with track gauges of 1435mm, 1520mm and 1668mm.

The aim of the “Automatic Gauge Changeover Systems” project is to establish requirements for gauge changeover systems while taking into account the most up-to-date technology and the importance of interoperability. These requirements shall serve towards developing a joint solution for the three existing track gauges (Spanish, Russian and UIC standard 1435mm track gauges) as well as passenger and freight traffic. In addition to the technical requirements for gauge changeover systems, the solutions include cost-effectiveness predictions (based on a cost-benefit analysis), which take the volume of traffic, the type of transport and the operational processes at system interfaces into consideration, as well as factoring in market interests and synergy effects. To this end, cooperation between UIC and OSJD is essential.

So far a UIC feasibility study has been completed, which is to serve as a basis for future analysis. In order to improve cooperation, the “Automatic Gauge Changeover Systems” Joint Working Group between UIC and OSJD (“AGCS JWG”) was founded in a kick-off meeting in November 2011 in the OSJD Committee and a work programme that would come into force in 2012 was adopted. It was also decided at this meeting to let third parties carry out some tasks as consultants. The AGCS JWG experts will therefore provide specialist support to this consultancy work and assess solutions.
