Four projects illustrate the type of experience that we have gained :

1. Mechanical Systems for Shunting/Marshalling Yards. This study was carried out in the main European markets as well as the USA.

The aims were :

  • to describe the present position
  • to identify trends (Marshalling Yards, have changed greatly in the past few years in number, size and efficiency).
  • to find out from decision takers what were their plans and their reactions to a UK supplier.

2. To investigate the trends in Payment Systems in Mass Transit situations including tokens, through to no-charge systems.

3. Development of the background to tendering practices in world markets, for large scale electrification.

4. Market study on likely demand for small diesel locomotives.
