Metro Maintenance & Haulage

Clayton Equipment's CB40 and CD40 locomotives, are market leading products, developed for Metro maintenance and haulage applications where the track and underground kinematic gauges are smaller than normal and gradients can be steeper (up to 1:15 permitted, with 1:25 typical).

World-leading mainline products and solutions

CB40 Battery Locomotive

CB40 Battery Locomotive

The battery CB40 has a number of unique features and flexible options, which offer you superior performance. Highlights include:

  • Ability to operate on both battery and traction supply (overhead catenary or 3rd/4th rail systems)
  • On-board battery charging while on the move – arrive at the work site with a full battery, enabling the traction current to be turned off for maintenance
  • High haulage capacity and range
  • No Diesel engine emissions – improved health and safety, particularly in underground Metro systems, with significant reduction in maintenance costs
  • Improved Operational Flexibility - low noise for operating during out-of-hours in residential areas; on-board battery recharges the battery during the passenger operating hours, ready for late shift working
  • Conversion from existing diesel to battery-electric locomotives is now possible
  • Optimised design to fit into restricted Metro infrastructure kinematic gauge envelopes, similar to London Underground in the U.K.

CD40 Diesel Locomotive

CD40 Diesel Locomotive

The diesel CD40, the world's first Euro IV Diesel locomotive, offers an alternative solution for Metro maintenance and haulage. The CD40 has a number of unique features, with flexible options, offering you superior performance. Highlights include:

  • The world's first Euro IV (USA Tier 4) emission compliant tunnelling locomotive: provides the lowest exhaust emissions available, protecting your employees and reducing the ventilation costs
  • True bi-directional working, with improved line of sight
  • High haulage capacity and range
  • Lower maintenance costs: No engine DPF; low maintenance gearboxes; virtually wear free transmission; easy access to the engine, transmission, sanders, fuel, screenwash and AdBlue tank fillers
