The UK rail network is extensive and still has many assets in daily use that are no longer available to purchase new, or there may be limited supply. It is incredibly important that these assets are maintained in full functional use to keep trains moving.
Network Rail required 60 points machine actuators to be refurbished urgently due to a having no remaining functional stock. The Unipart Rail Design & Development team worked with their Service Centre colleagues to design an overhaul process and to prove its suitability via the Network Rail DFR process where safety has to proven at all stages of design, manufacture, test and installation.
The first units are now installed and there is an on-going refurbishment process in progress to deliver further units to Network Rail timescales.
