Rail Live 2016 and OTP/RRV Roundup - June 2016
1 July 2016
A round-up of on-track machine and road-railer deliveries & disposals during June 2016.
Towards the end of June the "Rail Live 2016" exhibition took place at Long Marston with over 120 items of plant on display. This round-up article includes new machines noted at the exhibition. For a full list of vehicles you can visit the sightings page, and you can discuss what was there in the forum. Several new machines were on display without numbers etc, hopefully these will become known/assigned in the coming weeks.
As always, thanks to everyone who has contributed information for this article. If you or your company has any updates/details of new deliveries for our next article then please leave a comment below, post in the forum or email us privately. You can also upload photos here. Thanks!
