Railweight says its Weighline system can weigh trains with an accuracy of +/-0.25% and wagons with an accuracy of +/-0.5%. Overweight wagons are identified automatically and the train is stopped so the load can be reduced.

The weighing system comprises four pairs of transducers fitted to sections of rail, a TSR4000 weight indicator, and dedicated PCs which use I-Line software to detect overweight wagons and trains. The system calculates uniform distributed loads to enable it to detect overloaded wagons, and produces a report for each train showing wheel loads, axleloads, wagon type, train consist, and the tare, gross and net weights for each wagon.
