The current collector shoe touches the third rail system from underneath. The third rail system is fully covered by insulating material.
The current collector shoe touches the third rail system from the top. The third rail system is generally covered by insulating material, leaving an access for train's current collector shoes.
The current collector shoe touches the third rail system from the side.
Coextruded rail combining aluminum & stainless steel
A pair of aluminum extruded splices (plates) fixed to the web of the conductor rail using a bolting connection
Used to evenly engage and disengage the train current collector shoe during transitions
Manufactured in a glass reinforced polyester, designed to insulate the third rail system and withstand mechanical stresses
Designed to control the expansions and contractions of the third rail system, caused by temperature variation
Designed to accommodate thermal expansion and contraction of the third rail system, due to ambient temperature variation and heat rise
Fixed to the web of the conductor rail by means a bolting connection
Designed to split (insulate) two electrical sections of third rail system
Fastened to the conductor rail to minimise the risk of electrical shock due to accidental contact with the conductor rail and to provide protection against debris
