A Road Rail Vehicle (RRV) Mobile Elevated Work Platform is a vehicle which can operate both on rail tracks and a conventional road. These vehicles are fitted with ‘railing’ systems that allow them to be fully operational on the rail track under controlled conditions.
They are often converted road vehicles, keeping their normal wheels with rubber tires, but fitted with additional flanged steel wheels for running on rails. The rail wheels are raised and lowered as needed. Purpose-built road-rail vehicles also exist.
