Future Machine Roundup (list updated 6 December 2016)

As mentioned in one of the recent comments, there has been a large Network Rail order for a new ballast cleaning system. I thought it would be a good time to do a quick roundup of other machines due in the future. Some CEPS numbers are guesses based on existing ranges/types, so these are subject to change. Likewise, due dates are approximate.

I've probably missed one or two, so if you know of anything else then please get in touch (via email if you don't want to post in public). Thanks!

Note: this post only covers large machines. If you have any new road-railers to mention, please post in the RR forum.

There will be plenty to keep an eye out for in the future!...

re: the Network Rail tampers, three are on order not two; two are 09-2X-D-RT machines with 3rd rail capability, and one is an 09-3X-D-RT.

Some interesting DR/RIV numbers have emerged for the new Plasser machines:

DR74002 = 99 70 9128002-1 - 09-2X/CM? (Which begs the question, is there a 74001? SBRail's "928001" perhaps??)

DR77010 = 99 70 9125010-7 - USP6000?

DR77909 = 99 70 9125909-0 - USP5000

DR73120 = 99 70 9123120-6 (what's happened to 73119? Was this initially allocated to one of the initial two 09-3Xs and subsequently cancelled/skipped when the order was changed to two 09-2Xs (73122?), or am I reading too much into the gap?)

DR73121 = 99 70 9123121-4

DR73122 = 99 70 9123122-2

The 1231xx & 1259xx are interesting, do the older 731xx/779xx machines have correlating RIV numbers assigned?

The older machines will have a UIC number assigned, but who knows whether they correlate or not! Think it's about time the older stuff started carrying their 12 digit numbers!

A little bird tells me that NR has ordered some new rail grinding trains.

Initial list updated with Crossrail Linginger milling train, two new Kirows for TransPlant, three new Loram C44(XX) grinding sets for Network Rail, and a few delivery dates.

If anyone can add to thi, such as numbers or anything I've missed then please get in touch either here or via email. Thanks!

Hello,

early May the new tamping 09-3X Dynamic for Network Rail

has been tested in Austria

DR 73120 99 70 9123 120-6,

Builder Plasser & Theurer

Builder Nr 6413

11 MFS D units were brought in April through the Channel Tunnel to England.

Can someone tell the numbers?

In May 3 other MFS-D were built at Plasser.

DR 92 932 - 99 70 9310 932-7

DR 92 333 - 99 70 9310 933-5

DR 92 334 - 99 70 9310 934-3

DR 92 335 - 99 70 9310 935-0

Greetings

- Ralf -

Hi Ralf,

92908 - 92919 arrived January 2016.

92920 - 92932 arrived mid-March 2016 (although no-one has reported sightings of them).

DR92908-DR92932 are all being stored in Carlisle Yard at the moment. They are supposed to be put through acceptance testing at Tuxford. I think they are in Carlisle for safe storage and waiting for the rest of the train to arrive before moving down to Tuxford. A couple of weeks ago, work took place over a few days at Edwinstowe to install 3rd rail sleepers. This I presume is to test these wagons as I believe this HOBC set is to be Southern Region based.

For the list at the top, DR 76504 RM900 RIV number is 99709 314504-0

Also the 09-2X/CM listed as DR74002 is actually DR76802, and it's RIV number is 99709 320802-0

Additional to the list are:

- Spoil Power Wagon - 6367 - DR 92477 - 99709 310477-3

- New Ballast Power Wagon - 6368 - DR 92478 - 99709 310478-1

Oh the RM900 build number is 6364/6365, and the 09-2X/CM is 6366, missed them off the list above

Thanks for the updates HighOutput. Will update the records in due course.

Looking at the photo you added of 73120, I guess these must be due in the country soon?

DR74002/128002 is SBRail's second 09-4x4, apologies for mistake in initial listing.

The first tamper is due around the back end of July Vince. The first 2X and the USP5000 mid-August, and the rest of the kit is arriving in September.

The railgrinder trains are:

4 car consist machine x 2, named CRG01 and CRG02 (corrective rail grinder), working primarilty in a possession with the option of amalgamating to form an 8 car machine.

7 car consist machine x 1 named PLG01 (plain line grinder), working primarily in traffic.

Sorry, I don't know the DR numbers yet but CRG01 is due to arrive on these shores in autumn 2016, with CRG02 arriving early 2017 and PLG01 arriving in the spring.

There have been a lot of deliveries and orders for new machines in the last few months, so I have updated the list in the first post. Exciting times!

Thanks for keeping us up to date with this. I saw 44 very shiny new looking wagons at Doncaster Decoy yesterday. Too far away to get any numbers, but I believe they are DR92900 - DR92943 inclusive.

They were formed into 2 rakes of 22.

Chris

Correct Chris, moved from Carlisle to Doncaster as two trains, and will travel to Tuxford as one train tomorrow morning

Thanks for the confirmation HighOutput.

Chris

Lodge Lane is a private industrial estate and has a barrier , normally in the up position but can be lowered when the security hut is manned. Where the wagons have been parked today, even with access onto Lodge Lane, you will be very lucky to read or even see half of the rake.

Vince, the photos I have added here of 76504 and 77909 don't appear to be linked to machine info pages when you search for the machine numbers

Sorry about that - photo situation now fixed!

There was a cancelled move yesterday from Dollands Moor to Thoresby which is near enough Tuxford? 76504 perhaps? I believe 77010 is arriving by road

Yes it should have been 76504 + 09-2X/CM + power wagons, now planned to arrive on Tuesday

Thanks - so if this runs tomorrow evening it should be

76504

76802

92477

92478

running via Kensington, WCML to Nuneaton then Leicester

http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/R22274/2016/10/17/advanced

Twice there has been schedules in for these wagons to move from Dollands Moor to Thoresby. The latest move was cancelled due to paperwork. I noticed from Steves postings that 92478 has not been sighted at DM, the rest are there. Is this one of the reasons these have not moved as yet?

I was told the new kit didnt have gauge clearance for the previous booked route. Not sure how this happens but anyway!

I also noticed 92478 was missing - Steve did you see it?

Move now apparently planned for Tuesday.

These are parked quite awkwardly at Dollands Moor, with the wagons at the very north end. Having blown up a photo, I think only one wagon is present.

Yes another STP schedule ,6Z42, in for Tuesday morning. Booked off Dollands Moor 00:29 same route as last week and arrives Thoresby 07:56. I'm not holding my breath.

Had a view of Dollands Moor yesterday (22/10). Definitely just the one wagon accompanying the 2 machines as far as I can tell. Thanks to everyone who has shared info on this.

I'm told the two power wagons are there - back to back to prevent need for barrier wagons.

Hi Ben, I may well be wrong with my earlier comment, apologies to all - are the power wagons single cabbed? If so there are probably 2 of them. I can't really see a join in the middle, but I can see cabs at both ends (the side window only on the one facing away from where I was stood).

Chris

Both power wagons have a single cab. They can only travel back-to-back unless the Spoil Power Wagon conveyor is supported on a match wagon or MFS wagon. When back-to-back the the conveyor is supported by the New Ballast Power Wagon. In this case it is difficult to see the join.

Roger

Thanks Roger, most helpful.

Chris

It's on it's way!

The photographs of 92285 & 92286 may help clarify my earlier post.

Roger

  • Thumbnail 92286a
  • Thumbnail 92285

Thanks Vince

Roger

Initial post now updated with details of recent deliveries. A few queries...

DR77010 - has anyone the build number(s?) for this please?

DR79301 - has anyone seen this since the start of November? Are the other vehicles with it? In general, does anyone have more info please?

515006 RailVac - things have been quiet on this front, would've expected the final machine to have been delivered by now.

USP6000 is 6416 2016 and USP5000 is 6417 2016. Don't forget to link my recently uploaded pic of 77010 to the machine data page Vince :)

Will add another pic of 77909 shortly...

Thanks, now all sorted!

Looks like the new HOBC is on its way to Fairwater Yard. Two trains left Thoresby this morning, running as 6Y37 and 6Y38.

6Y37 due Bristol Parkway 14:47 to 15:01 then BTM 15:13 to 15:18

6Y38 due Bristol Parkway 17:15 and BTM 17:31

Appears to be 40 of the 929xx wagons, 92282, 76323 and 2 perch split over 2 trains.

515006 (Railvac 6)

I am informed that a photo of this machine, taken in Sweden, appeared in the Nov - Dec 2016 issue of 'Rail Infrastructure' magazine.
