TBOX service on Class 320 vehicles
Brodie Engineering are excited to announce that we will be carrying out TBOX services on Eversholt Rail’s fleet of Class 320 vehicles.
The fleet of 22 units, each a three car set, is operated by ScotRail out of the Shields depot.
ScotRail Head of Fleet Technical, Jeff Doherty said:
“The Class 320s are a valued part of our fleet, and this work to further renew the condition will ultimately enhance the overall experience for our customers.”
Steve Timothy, Client Relations Director, Eversholt Rail said:
“We are delighted to be working with Brodie Engineering on our Class 320 fleet. This investment is vital to ensure we continue to provide a safe and high-quality train for our customers and rail passengers in Scotland.”
The TBOX (time based overhaul) is carried out approximately every 9 years, and requires safety-critical overhauls on components including brakes, doors and pantograph equipment. Brodie Engineering’s talented workforce have the skills, experience and competence to carry out these works within our Kilmarnock depot. While in Kilmarnock the vehicles will also receive an exterior repaint in our state-of-the-art paint booth.
George Davidson, Transport Scotland’s Rolling Stock Sponsor said:
“It’s good to see this safety-critical work on ScotRail’s class 320 fleet taking place at Brodie’s and securing jobs in Kilmarnock. This reflects the industry’s trust in the highly-skilled workforce and the fact this type of overhaul can be carried out here in Scotland.”
The work for this contract will commence in January 2020 and will be completed at the end of 2021.
