founded on Italian experience
This renewal train has revolutionized the world of railway superstructures and track work systems.
It was invented in the 1970s by the owner of Valditerra (today GCF), Sergio, who after years of study and on-site experience, developed the "Valditerra Renewal Train System" - a machine capable of laying new lines or replacing tracks in a single pass, thereby limiting human intervention and all the risks that this entailed at the time.
The prototype of this train, which was later patented and marketed by Matisa with the P811 name was used for the first time in 1978 in Australia.
The P811 renewal train, with all the technological innovations progressively introduced, is still the flagship system - compact, agile, powerful and tireless in any site.
The P811S renewal train lays rails and sleepers through a continuous workfeed process - a necessary condition to ensure high performance levels.
Since machine progress is no longer obstructed during replacement operations, this ensures an important advantage for the site.
This advantage is even more evident in the cases of sites involving complete relaying while using the Matisa C90L bed cleaning-screening system when performance matches that of the Matisa P811.
