We provide specialist engineering trains, purpose-built to work anywhere on the London Underground network.
Our aim is to ensure that all your equipment and materials are delivered and collected on time, whether to or from station platforms or track sites. We are fully appreciative of the limited working hours available to you. Our trains leave depots on time, often following the last passenger train, ensuring your engineering hours are maximised.
Knowledge and experience
The key to successful delivery is the knowledge and experience of our people together with the range of plant and equipment we have available, which includes:
- 43 locomotives
- Wide variety of wagons
- Rail cranes
- Roll loader
- Long welded rail train
- Disabs, used to remove and replace track ballast and assist with drainage problems
- Wagon-mounted equipment for rail delivery/recovery trackside and for rail recovery from the four-foot
- De-icing and sleet units, with 30 on-call drivers
- Track recording vehicle
We are happy to modify wagons to meet your needs through our won engineering department, which can not only carry out the modifications but manage the approval process for running on the Underground network.
As well as our existing set of three plain line tampers, we can offer you the use of our points and crossings tamper. We have also invested in two rail sleeper delivery trains (RSDT). The largest RSDT enables you to replace, in one weekend possession, up to 1000m of track and sleepers on open section – a huge improvement of nearly 100 per cent on using traditional methods. The smaller RSDT can also cope with track and sleeper replacement work within the subsurface tunnel section.
Vents and shafts
Our Vent gang carries out cleaning maintenance to all areas of limited access within the Tube network. This helps to minimise fire hazards and improve the ambience of the system, stations and the track environment by removing many tonnes of dust each year. This multi-disciplined team carries out this role and provides a variety of services including scaffolding, lift and escalator operators. The team is also a source of valuable information on areas of limited access – helping you in material delivery to track, using vent shafts as a means of entry.
