Rail Connect System (Inline refueling) - travel long distances without stopping to refuel

Jan. 29, 2019

Refuel International Rail Connect System (Inline refuelling) is designed to allow diesel-powered trains to travel long distances without having to stop to refuel. A flatcar with two bulk diesel fuel tanks, one of which has a pumping module underneath, is connected to the diesel locomotive(s), providing constant in-transit refuelling of the locomotives. It is a revolutionary fuelling system that continuously refuels the locomotive day tanks during long haul operations. The system is designed so that a locomotive can be coupled to either or both ends of the inline fuelling system flatcar. Dedicated connections for fuel, electrical / MU and air are provided at both ends of the inline system.


·         Continuously transfers a controlled amount of fuel from bulk storage tanks to the locomotive day tank, removing the need to take fuel onboard during long haul trips.

·         Provides operational efficiencies to reduce trip costs and prevent costly delays.

·         Fail-safe technology ensures the integrity of the system during operation and addresses environmental concerns by disallowing refuelling if there is a potential leak in the system (for example if any connectors come loose in transit).

·         All fuel connections are via “dry break” couplings

·         On start-up and before each refuelling operation, an automatic system pressure test checks the integrity of the fuel lines before allowing refuelling to commence.


Rapid return on investment has seen this system quickly becoming standard equipment on long haul locomotives.
