Railway Asset Scanning Car Pod - RASC® Pod


The Railway Asset Scanning Car (RASC®) Pod is an innovative trackbed inspection solution that has the potential to improve:

    • The return on investment in measurement systems


    • The cost effectiveness of maintenance


  • Track safety


The RASC® Pod can be fitted to many types of rail road and rail bound vehicles and offers exceptional flexibility with a variety of above- and below-ground measurement systems designed to characterise the condition of the track.



Multiple RASC® Pods can be deployed for the cost of a single inspection train. This improved return on investment results in better coverage, less impact on revenue earning traffic and less manpower.
