New Machines Arrive
30 August 2003
During August, several new Items of On-Track Plant arrived in the country.
Towards the beginning of the month, 75401, a Matisa B41UE for GrantPlant arrived at Derby RTC for testing. This has since been noted on the northern part of the WCML undergoing trials.
On the 29th, a new Loram Rail Grinder (C2102) for Network Rail was noted at the RTC being unloaded from several lorries. 79241-79244 and 79247 were noted during the early afternoon. No doubt the other two pieces were somewhere waiting to be unloaded.
As yet, we do not have build numbers for any of the new machines.
