The two long-term projects at the ProActif workshop, which is also out of work, are on hold:
Railcar ex DB VT 95 669 aka 551.669.
This project of a major overhaul had become necessary due to the long service life without major interventions. It was 1996 when the railcar was transferred from the Chemin de Fer des 3 Vallées (B) to Fond-de-Gras. Some unavoidable repairs were carried out and years of intensive use followed.
At the beginning of 2015, the railcar entered the ProActif workshop.
Currently, the engine-truck part is completed: Overhaul by specialized workshops of the diesel engine, all auxiliary units, axles, engine axle, springs, shock absorbers, brake system components. Internally by ProActif: cleaning, stripping and painting, reassembly, renewal of all pneumatics, reassembly of the engine truck under the body.
Body side: removal of the entire interior of the passenger compartment, removal of the corroded floor panels and the exterior of the body, renewal of the access steps, repair of the doors, stripping, cleaning and painting of the body framework and the roof.
In front of the containment, the adjustment and renewal of the cooling and heating lines was prepared. Waiting for the resumption.
