Like journeys on the Orient Express or the Trans-Siberian Railway, traveling on the Bernina and Glacier Express is one of the dreams of railway lovers around the world. This dream be-came a reality for the TÜV SÜD Rail inspectors in the summer of 2008. On behalf of the Rhae-tian Railway, they carried out tests along the rail operator's railway network at a height of 1000 meters above sea level on their flat transporter wagons. The universal data acquisition tool QuantumX from HBM naturally had to be involved.
The Rhaetian Railway operates in the Swiss Canton of Graubünden; in addition to various regional routes, it also has a route with car transporter trains that has been in operation all year around through the 20 kilometer long Vereina tunnel since 1999. The safety of the transported passengers and vehicles is of course top priority - and this was checked in May and June of 2008 by the TÜV SÜD Rail experts. The main emphasis of the comprehensive measurements was the determination of load collectives during operation.
