Technical Tour: Hy-Rail Response Truck: a North American First
Built between 1912 and 1917 and commissioned in 1918, the Mont Royal Tunnel is a major infrastructure for the commuter rail operations in the Montreal area as it provides direct access to downtown for users of the network’s busiest line, the Deux-Montagnes line and most recently, the Mascouche line.

The hy-rail response truck is one of the first improvements carried out to authorize the passage of dual-mode (diesel fuel and electricity) locomotives in the tunnel, to limit the risk of accidents and/or fire in the tunnel, as well as to facilitate the management of events, if necessary.

The hy-rail response truck revolutionizes emergency railway responses to both incidents and accidents because by combining both modes—rail and road—it can travel quickly across the commuter rail network.

Custom-built, equipped with an ultra-high pressure pump (PyroLance) able to perforate a locomotive’s body and put out a fire from the outside, it is also fitted with a 500-gallon water tank (50-minute autonomy) and a 1000-foot hose.

Come and discover the multiple facets of this unique innovation developed in collaboration with the Montreal Fire Department, the first hy-rail response vehicle of its kind in North America.
