How Does A Draft Gear Absorb Railcar Energy?

Every day, across North America, railcars are subjected to potentially damaging forces. The draft gear’s job is to manage the forces by absorbing and cushioning the energy associated with pushing, pulling, starting, stopping, and coupling rail cars. Miner has over 125 years of Draft Gear experience, producing more than 5 million gears. The TF-880 Draft Gear is the most widely specified draft gear in the industry, with a 35-year track record and over 1.4 million gears in service.
