Locomotive Frame Stands

March 2019

At Lakeside Industries, we are often called on to solve interesting problems around issues of weight, support and access.

 

Recently the Severn Valley Railway Engineering Services team contacted us to help them develop some safe stands to support steam locomotive frames during the early stages of overhaul before the chassis is re-wheeled.

 

We took existing products, analysed them and developed a new stand to give the required height for safe working but also providing improved stability and safety features, together with much increased strength to give a higher safe working load.

 

We are proud to support the Severn Valley Railway again in this project for specialized rail related access equipment.
