Formed in 2008, Railway Support Services has grown to become one of the country’s premier providers of Breakdown and Recovery services to train operating companies in the UK, providing re-railing and wheelskating on a 24/7 basis nationwide.

 

In addition, we are able to supply Class 08 diesel-electric shunting locomotives to depots and yards where the shunting or movement of rail vehicles is a requirement. These locomotives have been the mainstay of railway shunting yards for more than 60 years and there is little sign of their services diminishing.

 

In order to provide a one-stop service, Railway Support Services are also able to provide specialist low loader trailers in order to undertake the movement of all types of railway vehicles by road should the vehicle be unable to move by rail for a variety of reasons.

 

All of our services come with experienced and competent operators and being a nationwide operator we are able to work anywhere, including on depots and on industrial sites as well as within the heritage railway movement, offering our services at very reasonable rates.

 

We are committed to providing the highest levels of customer service to our clients which is concreted by our attainment of ISO:9001, ISO:14001 and ISO45001 standards relating to quality, environmental and health and safety management as well as being a RISQS-approved supplier.
