Secret Lubrication of the Queen of Steep Slopes: The Pilatus Railway lubricated with simalube!


Fascinating success story – the use of simalube for automatic lubrication of the world-famous Pilatus Railway! The Pilatus Cogwheel train is not only an impressive technical feat, but also the steepest cogwheel railway in the world, running over 4.6 kilometres from Alpnachstad to Mount Pilatus, overcoming an incredible 1633 metres of difference in altitude. The planning and construction of this railway in April 1886 under the direction of Eduard Locher required technical specialities due to the challenging topography. With gradients of up to 48%, the Pilatus Railway is a true marvel of engineering.

In the video, you can see how simalube helps to ensure the smooth functioning of the rotary switch of this steep rack railway.️️ Take a look at the impressive application images to see how simalube makes an important contribution to the maintenance and efficiency of this historic railway line.
