Train Recovery

31st October 2013

Crowland Cranes recently completed the recovery of a seven car train derailment; the task was completed on a tight time scale. The recovery was completed utilising all the in-house services of Crowland Cranes, including Crane hire, engineers, transport and 250 meters of temporary road. To access the crash site we had to cross a field of some 250 meters using our portable roadway system. Each car weighed 70t and the recovery process required three units to be lifted clear and re-positioned on the track using our flagship crane the 220t Tadano Faun, the remaining cars were jacked using our hydraulic power packs and winched into position by our engineers. Once again proving that our ‘One Stop Shop’ approach is a reality for our customers.
