This solution allows the CAF and Talgo trains to change gauges automatically and circulate both, on the Iberian width network (1.668mm) and on the standard width network (1.435mm). The change of gauge occurs without stopping the train, which does not cause a delay of time.
The dual changeovers allow the installation of a single changerover for both technologies (CAF and Talgo) being an optimal solution in terms of space, investment, infrastructure, and time.
It consists of a single platform that incorporates the gauge changing technology of both CAF and Talgo train manufacturers.
This model is the one that has been installed in León and Burgos, for example.
The TCRS2 is the second model of dual changeovers.
In this case the change of platform is made by a horizontal movement. This model is the one that has been installed in Medina del Campo, for example.
The TCRS1 is the first model of dual changeovers.
The change from one platform to another is done by means of a vertical dive. This model is the one that has been installed in Tarragona and Palencia, for example.
