UKRL shortlisted for rail industry award

22 November 2017 – UKRL is pleased to announce that we have been shortlisted for the UK Rail Industry Awards in the Design Innovation category.

The shortlisted design for the first time allows the simple, safe and efficient operation of Tightlock equipment on a traditional freight locomotive, finally enabling the move of electric units without the need for translator vehicles, which had been the standard for many decades.

UKRL undertook design, manufacture, testing and fitting of the new equipment to Class 37 locomotives, with all work done at Leicester TMD.
