Regular maintenance of traction and rolling stock is an essential part of safe and reliable train operation. UKRL’s engineering expertise covers all mechanical and electrical systems. Services available include vehicle inspection, routine maintenance, painting, component change and component overhaul for Diesel and Electric Locomotives, DMU’s, EMU’s and wagons.

The high cost of rolling stock investment and the fact that over 30% of lifecycle costs of trains are tied up in maintenance. This means that operators can also gain a competitive advantage from seeking out the best and most efficient maintenance services supplier.

UKRL has the experience and facilities to provide the high-end technical expertise needed at a competitive price. In addition to maintenance being available at our workshops in Leicester, UKRL can also send service engineers into the field to undertake repairs, maximising locomotive availability. All maintenance services are carried out in accordance with the customer’s VMI.
