Abstract:
A system for loading, transporting and unloading railway track components, such as rails, railway track apparatuses and parts of such apparatuses, comprising at least one transport wagon equipped with a plurality of jib cranes for lifting and shifting wood components on at least one side of the track, and means for storing the track components on the wagon. The wagon (2) comprises a plurality of lift tables (10) for storing railway track (8) components, that are distributed along the length of the wagon and can be moved vertically between a low position underneath the jib cranes (20) and a high position above the jib cranes, and each jib crane (20) comprises a horizontal arm (22) that can be moved between an idle position along the axis of the wagon and a position perpendicular to said axis and a carriage for taking hold of the track (8) components that can be moved along the arm (22) between a position for taking hold of a track component on the lift tables (10) and a position for fitting and removing a track element, on the left-hand side or right-hand side of the railway track (8).
