Kelvin Workshop smallLoram UK Ltd has undertaken a range of significant rebuild and re-engineering projects for Network Rail and other customers over recent years.

Our in-house CAD design team use state of the art 3D software to provide turnkey services and have delivered Snow and Ice Treatment Trains for the Kent, Sussex and Wessex Routes. This saw ‘YHA’ and ‘SPA’  donor vehicles completely rebuilt and fitted with modular power units, ‘kilfrost’ dispersal units, snowploughs and third rail sleet and cleaning brushes.

We have also provided Network Rail with two brand new, state of the art, Ultrasonic Test Units and are currently working on delivering a third. Created by extensively rebuilding Mk1 donor vehicles these have provided enhanced ultrasonics testing facilities as well as a significant improvement to the on-train working environment of NR and partner technicians.

We are currently undertaking the complete rebuild of bi-mode class 73 locomotives. As well as offering greater cab comfort to drivers these will see the fitment of new diesel power packs delivering enhanced traction capability when not drawing power from the third rail. The first two of these new locomotives are due for delivery in early 2014.
