New technology being used to maintain MNR tracks

The new technology pioneered by Interflon UK Ltd which has been developed with Network Rail will speed up the production rate for lubricating the railways 3000+ fishplates.

The innovation means that only 1 member is required to carry out the maintenance with another in a support vehicle as opposed to the traditional 4-6 members of P-Way and 2-3 Traincrew to facilitate the maintenance trains.

The railway is currently focusing on the Dereham-Wymondham Permanent Way section which is anticipated will only take two weeks. A massive improvement for the members working environment as the physical endurance is expected to be much less.
