Obsolete Rail Electronic Equipment Repair.

Refurbishment, servicing and repair of obsolete rail electronics.


Because something is obsolete, it doesn’t mean that it can’t be supported. It doesn't meant that it can't be repaired. It doesn't mean that you have to upgrade it.

This is especially true when it comes to electronic equipment used on the rail network.

Take this sample of electronic items, these are some of the control electronics used in a class 43 HST power car locomotive. (An Intercity 125 if you remember those and the adverts on TV with one jokingly being pulled over by a police train!)

The locomotives were built by British Rail Engineering Ltd between 1975 and 1982, over 40 years later and they're still working on our rail network. These PCBs and controls are an upgrade to the originals however they're obsolete and no longer supported by the OEM.

These controls still need to be used and they still need to be supported. They are very typical of the rail and traction equipment we see for repair, service and refurbishment in our electronics workshop. It was in the early 1980s that we set-up another division to our business specifically to support equipment that users needed supporting, and that had been made obsolete by the manufacturer.

Over 40 years later we are still supporting many rail freight and passenger operators with obsolete electronic equipment servicing.

If you've ever wanted to see how electronic equipment and printed circuit boards (PCBs) are diagnosed and serviced. In particular how we use the same equipment many manufacturers use themselves to fault find, feel free to message me or drop us an email and we'll be glad to show you around our workshops.
