Light 4x4 (Rail Incident Unit)  

Rail Incident Unit

These vehicles are highly specialist units designed to be operated on-road and on-rail for emergency and rescue incidents on the rail network. Both vehicles are fitted with ‘railing’ systems that allow them to be fully operational on the rail track under controlled conditions and in full conjunction with Network Rail; they can access the Severn tunnel in the event of an incident. The vehicles are of entirely differing designs to meet specific purposes and are fitted with an extensive range of rescue equipment. The vehicles are based on Unimog 4X4 and Volvo FL6 chassis respectively.
