Exothermic Track Connector Wire Vector EPS

Exothermic Track Connector (EPS)

Exothermic welding is usually used for welding copper conductors but is suitable for welding a wide range of metals, including stainless steel, cast iron, common steel, brass, bronze, and Monel. It is especially useful for joining dissimilar metals.

Exothermic Bond Wire (EPS)

Exothermic welding, also known as exothermic bonding, thermite welding, is a welding process for joining two electrical conductors, that employs superheated copper alloy to permanently join the conductors.

Metal Bungalow Tool Maintenance Shed Vector EPS

Bungalow Shed (EPS)

Not the type of bungalow you live in, this bungalow houses a motorized unit which provides heat to rail road tracks in order to keep the snow and ice off rail switching mechanisms. Feel free to repurpose it as a tool shed.

Track Signal Mast Post Pole Vector EPS

Signal Mast (EPS)

Signals are most commonly mounted on trackside masts about 12 feet (3.7 m) to 15 feet (4.6 m) high to put them in the eyeline of the engineer. Signals can also be mounted on signal bridges or cantilever masts spanning multiple tracks. Signal bridges and masts typically provide at least 20 feet (6.1 m) of clearance over the top of the rail. North American railroad signals generally fall into the category of multi-headed electrically lit units displaying speed-based or weak route signalling. Signals may be of the searchlight, color light, position light, or color position light types, each displaying a variety of aspects which inform the locomotive engineer of track conditions so that he or she may keep their train under control and able to stop short of any obstruction or dangerous condition.
