TGV

...carries in them track repair equipment and lots of spare rails...
When a section of rails need change due to a defect or wear, the TGV will be assigned to repair them..

It's a matter of cutting the defective rails away and replacing them with new ones and done within a specified time.

The structure cage here is able to transfer new rails via pulleys and chain blocks (some motorised) onto the tracks at a fraction of time.
