Abstract: The main focus of the project was to determine the degree to which current practice in underground mines ensures the safe use of rail bound haulage equipment. The project investigated the specifications, design and braking performance of underground locomotives, excluding those used on high speed main haulages. In addition a survey was carried out on the most widely used types of locomotives and the braking systems. The survey gave an insight into the knowledge of the mine personnel of the rail bound systems on their mines. For a comparison with local practice, international standards, systems and legislation were acquired.
