French term or phrase: des matériels composants et constituants de la voie ferrée
This term appears in a document outlining the tendering process for a project involving railway steel sleepers. A sample sentence:

- Documents qui présentent le chiffre d’affaires annuel moyen, sur la vente des matériels composants et constituants de la voie ferrée (hors Ponts métalliques), sur les cinq (5) dernières années.

I originally translated the phrase as "component parts and equipment for railways", but the client is asking whether it could be "railway track materials". Alternatively, I am considering "railway parts and equipment".

Thanks for any help and suggestions.
