Winter is rough on trains! The cold and snow can affect the operation of locomotives and the comfort of transit users in passenger cars. To prepare for the unexpected, exo takes additional measures.
In addition to the measures already in place, we’ve increased our maintenance staff in order to:
When locomotives are stopped, the trains are hooked up to an external power supply to ensure the support systems (battery chargers, block heaters, interior passenger heating system, etc.) remain at the perfect temperature for optimal operation.
In winter, additional verifications are carried out during the night, so that in the morning, the rolling stock is functional and comfortable.
