Fixed location bogie and wheelset drops are ideal for removing under floor modules without lifting or splitting the train, permitting simultaneous inspection and cleaning. Drop systems involve initial investment in pit construction, but can prove very flexible, incorporating access along the entire road if necessary.

Like bogie drops, under floor lifting systems can be tailored to the depot environment. They are best suited to new build facilities designed for one train type, as the vehicles are lifted by an in floor system that raises the rail sections under the bogies, then deploys retractable stands to support the body.

In depots where rails are elevated relative to the floor, rail removal systems enable sections to be taken away to give clear access to the underside of a carriage. Depending on the layout, they may be rolled out or swung like a gate, allowing wheelsets or modules to be removed.
