Rail journeys have doubled in the last 20 years, prompting the biggest rail modernisation program since Victorian times, including HS2 and Crossrail.

With the current rolling stock being refurbished, we can replace like for like components with original materials. However, in new rolling stock, the use of aluminium is more prevalent to reduce the weight of rolling stock, reducing CO2 emissions. With our knowledge in aluminium pressings, we have the opportunity to assist rail customers with modernising their rolling stock.

High-speed rail has been globally operational since the mid-1960s and has achieved speeds of over 200mph. This increase in pace has resulted in fewer short-haul flights passenger car journeys.

As it is commonly known, the tube is a rapid transit rail system that serves the region of London. As the world’s first underground passenger rail service, it still has many old trains and carriages needing modernisation.

High Speed 2 will initially connect London Euston to Birmingham by rail. Phase 2 of this project will connect Birmingham to Manchester and Birmingham to Leeds. This new network requires an estimated £7 billion to buy new rolling stock.
