Powered Catenary Maintenance Rail Cars. The increasing electrification of railroad routes also necessitated maintenance vehicles for the catenary wires. Between 1955 and 1974, the German Federal Railroad (DB) purchased 92 powered catenary maintenance rail cars (late the class 701) based on the proven Uerdinger VT 98 rail bus. These powered rail cars have a maximum speed of 90 km/h / 56 mph. There is a rest area between the engineer's cabs that is equipped with a small workshop with shelves, a work bench, and places to sit and to wash. The pantograph on the roof is used only for grounding and to check the position of the catenary wire. The hydraulic work platform has a capacity for up to 300 kilograms / 661 pounds and it can be raised and turned. It offers almost unlimited access to the catenary wire. In addition, there is a floodlight on the roof and an observation cupola. The powered catenary maintenance rail cars were originally painted in crimson until the German Federal Railroad prescribed a striking yellow paint scheme for its maintenance vehicles.
