Rail journeys have doubled in the last 20 years, prompting the most extensive rail modernisation program since Victorian times. Projects include HS2 and Crossrail.

With the current rolling stock refurbishment, we can replace like-for-like components with original materials. However, in new rolling stock, aluminium is more prevalent. This reduces the weight of rolling stock and reduces CO2 emissions. With our knowledge of 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 and 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 (HS2) 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.
