Overhead Maintenance Platform

The Overhead Maintenance Platform has been utilised at a number of different Train Maintenance facilities around Australia including, Craigieburn Train Maintenance Facility and Nowergup. The Overhead Maintenance Platform allows maintenance crew to work above the Electric Multiple Unit train. The Overhead Maintenance Platform traverses along an overhead girder via motorised trolleys allowing the maintenance personal to access any part of the train without having to shunt it within the facility. the platform also extends to ensure there are no gaps between the platform and the top of the roof.
