A simple, economical solution for static or in-motion rail weighing.Installs in just hours and provides accurate, dependable weighments at a fraction of the cost of other rail scale systems.

Weighline has payed for itself in hundreds of installations worldwide by preventing both underloads and overloads
of rail cars.

Weighline is a rugged and reliable railroad track scale that consists of a series of 5’10” rail sections specially prepared and instrumented with strain gauges. Each section of rail is designed to be a weighbridge for a single wheel. Most static applications use multiple Weighline sections so that there is a short weighbridge under each wheel of the car being weighed. Weighline is the only rail scale that can provide total car weights plus weight readings for individual trucks, axles and even wheels.

Standard Weighline scale capacity is 320,000 lbs (full draft) and 160,000 lbs (two draft). Custom Weighline scales with capacities of 20,000 lbs to 1,000,000 lbs are available.

The Link Removed, This is not model rail and is of little interest to modelers, therefore if it isn't quite span it's close to it
