Case study: Preventing potential derailment at DIRFT
Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal (DIRFT) plays an important role in supporting carbon emission reduction targets for transport and logistics companies. The intermodal rail-road facility, based in Daventry, Northamptonshire, helps to take trucks off the road. The busy rail freight terminal has daily services linking Southampton and Felixstowe ports to the railway, so it’s crucial that this piece of private track is kept in good, safe working condition.
Case study: Maintaining Wigan Springs Branch sidings
Wigan Springs Branch is a busy depot designed to house more than 30 trains, to allow the regional train operator to manage their fleet and turn around trains ready to deliver passengers services each day.
When NRL’s experienced team were engaged to assist with routine inspection and maintenance, a number derailment risks were identified which required resolution.
