Heavy Rail Projects
Comeng Life Extension
Metal Morphis was invited to quote on the Anti Train Surfing Modifications for the Comeng Life Extension Project. The scope of work included removing the hand rails from the front of the mask, blanking off the foot and step wells and preparing the surface ready for Transcal to fit new decals. The Northern fleet had a prominent front edge on the stepwell and a countersunk shape in the front mask with a left and right mirroring shape. We recommended that the existing repair process would benefit from being replaced with a part fitting process instead. The part/plug process would shorten the time frame and reduce mess on-site, but would require fabrication of a part that would fit into the recess and be glued in. This would then only require a small amount of filler with undercoat applied and sanded to create a smooth transition for the decals as shown in the below photos.
