STABLING & REFUELING
Our depot has a 10-road yard, connected to the Midland mainline. We offer stabling and storage for rail vehicles and currently provide on-site refueling through a third party supplier. Future plans include the re-commissioning of the fixed fueling point at Leicester TMD. You can download detailed information sheets on stabling and refueling below.
UKRL has plans to re-engineer some of its Class 56 fleet with new power units, creating an uprated 3,500hp class 5 freight locomotive, to meet demand and requirements over the next 20 to 30 years. At 60% of the cost of a new Class 68, the project offers a highly cost effect traction option for operators.
