Colas Rail acquires Amey's Fleet of Tampers

Colas Rail continue to expand their fleet of on-track machines, having just acquired Amey's eight tampers.

Amey were amongst the first to invest in the "next generation" of Plasser & Theurer tampers after privatisation of British Rail in the mid/late-1990s.

The move makes Colas Rail the largest operator of on-track machines in Europe.
