From a website admin perspective, unfortunately I won't be able to attend the show this year so will be relying on the regular contributors to help compile the usual report page. This process may be a bit slower than previous years but we'll get it completed eventually!

Also not seen the Liebherr 922 rail machine on display for Bear rail systems reg T-86-FFP

Thanks.

Yes I'm awaiting these two of course if they are within the scope of the website.

Others I have too are..

BANCE trolley 344/20 (already mentioned in the comments section)

The two GEISMAR trailers coupled to 975163 (already mentioned in the comments section)

The STORY 'Sleeper Layer System' present at their stand

4 pieces of MCCULLOCH machinery (One was numbered 03, TRT - which apparently staff do not know the identity of, a machine called 'Turnout Solution' and another unidentified machine)

AQUARIUS 'Mule' which would seem is for export

RACINE - DCA171

LIEBHERR 922 Rail machine T-86-FFP (Dutch reg plate)

The McCulloch machine number 03 is a TCT which i dont think are covered on this site.

One thing i noticed was tbat for some reason, the report (tick box list) for 21st June lists 120 vehicles, many of which are duplicated, whilst the 22nd June list, lists 77 vehicles, which is more likely to be correct.

Regarding McCulloch I was told that the big two gantry type units were 25 ton machines for lifting switch & crossings. 50 ton when combined.

I suppose that makes them the big brother to the FLASS and probably should be considered for inclusion on site.

The unusual shaped TRT next to the FLASS I was told was the new design remote control TRT and may become number 67.

Looks like a good show, thanks everyone for their input into getting the info & photos on site, and especially Paul for an overnight effort!

Don't think we have bance 344 listed - what type was that?

Will sort out some discrepancies with counts on sightings page when time allows.

If anyone has any photos of international unlisted machines please upload them for interest - they'll appear at the bottom of the "report" page. Likewise, there's a few final machine gaps.

Thanks!

Linsinger tamper attachment 21-050-127-001/2021 was on display again - this isn't listed, but a photo appears of the same machine in the 2022 Rail Live report

Just trying to tidy up some final bits - the two McCulloch MTS machines at Rail Live - one "pink" and one yellow, does any one know which was which out of 01 and 02? (Did they even have numbers?)

If it's of any help, when talking to one of the chaps on the McCulloch stand, I got the impression the yellow one was MTS01, and the pink one MTS 02. Also the advertising boards showed the machine in yellow. Sorry, I can't be more helpful.

Hi Vince

I could not find any numbers on them. As with Roger my conversations with the lads was the same they thought the yellow one was the first but nothing definite re future numbering.

By the way the site entries do not have the photos I submitted which were on the Rail Live Photo montage.

Dennis - "the site entries do not have the photos " are the final bits I'm trying to tidy up, as several people uploaded similar photos with various captions/opposing IDs; hence trying to pin down exactly which is which.
