This catalog covers rolling stock for underground, mass transit lines and tramlines as well as diesel and regional


The increasing need to reduce both volume and weight has lead to the development of miniaturized cables, as

well as high temperature cables with enhanced performance. This leads to highly stressed materials being used

in the harsh environment of rolling stock. Caledonian & Addison provides a full range of products from Medium

Voltage to Low Voltage cables, and from Standard Wall, Medium Wall to Thin Wall designs. The materials used

have been specially developed to improve mechanical and thermal properties, fire performance and extended life

using advanced technologies, such as electron beam irradiation and silan.

New challenges in the rolling stock industry must be met due to long-awaited equipment upgrades, booming

freight traffic and high-speed train projects, and the growing need for conventional subways, fully-automated

metros,and lightrail suburban vehicles worldwide. Caledonian & Addison manufactures a complete range of

rolling stock cables and components, meeting national and international standards, we supply wide range of

rolling stock cables from 300V to 6kV in cross section area of 0.5mmsq to 400mmsq covering diverse railway
