Passenger and Transit Testing
As a passenger or transit line, there is nothing seen as more "precious cargo" than your riders. Using Holland's contract testing services, our TrackSTAR® testing vehicles alongside our skilled teams, can provide you a comprehensive assesment of your track to allow you to prioritize repair work.
Once defects have been detected, Holland also offers transit welding solutions specifically designed to accomodate the unique characteristics of transit systems.

This unit can also find broken spikes and fasteners that can lead to derailments.
Loadings such as these, which replicate the type of loading that poorly performing vehicles are likely to generate, provide a truer picture of what the track actually “sees” under explicit traffic conditions.
What is Gauge Face Angle? Why is it important?
The shutdown of a transit system in the Eastern US after a derailment in which high gauge face angle was recorded has brought the measurement to the attention of transit systems across the country. We created a white paper to explain all about this type of measurement and why it should be a focus for your track inspections.
