Type 4X Enclosures Description and Application
Type 4X enclosures are intended for indoor or outdoor use primarily to provide a degree of protection against corrosion, windblown dust and rain, splashing water, hose-directed water, and damage from external ice formation. They are not intended to provide protection against conditions such as internal condensation or internal icing.
The Croton-Harmon Maintenance Facility located at Croton-on-Hudson, NY, has been servicing trains for more than a century, and undergoing renovations since 2001. The improvements were paramount, as prior to the renovation the tracks were not long enough to service an entire train at once. Extending the tracks to service an entire train will allow the maintenance yard to keep their 98% on time record.
