New machine orders
2 January 2002
Since OTP2000 was published, at least 9 new machines have been ordered.
GTRM were first off the mark, with 3 Plassers (types unknown). The first has apparently been delivered, with the next two due very soon.
Jarvis have also ordered three 08 4x4's for the ECML.
Not wanting to feel left out, Balfour Beatty have ordered three 08-4x4/C100-RT's for the WCML. This order commences BBs plan to replace their 07 series tampers. So, if you haven't seen them all, you'd best find them soon!
