Train Operations

We specialise in train movements relating to delivery, testing, maintenance, modification and refurbishment programmes. Our train operations include:

  • new build deliveries, testing and fault-free running
  • fleet maintenance, modification or refurbishment programmes
  • fleet cascade or transfer programmes
  • vehicle / fleet testing (eg, ETCS fitment)
  • infrastructure-train interface testing
  • redundant / off-lease stock for storage
  • passenger (ECS), ad-hoc freight or engineering rolling stock movements
  • traction and rolling stock movements for private owners / operators.

We also have a small fleet of dedicated locomotives which have been modified with electrical brake translation equipment and a range of coupler types to enable direct coupling to, and through automatic brake control of, most UK EMU types. This negates the need to use historic barrier and translator type vehicles.

We are not distracted by, or have to divert valuable resources to, passenger, civil engineering or freight operations thus affording a unique level of customer service, performance and reliability.
