MiddlePeak Railways hold a fleet of hire & lease locomotives, including serveral which are very similar to the ex-British Railways class 08/11 diesel shunter & ex-NS Dutch 600 Class (Rangeer Lok/Bakkie). Each locomotive can be hired complete with a turnkey maintenance package to suit your the customer requirements. We have access to a large range of other types of locomotive & equipment if required. We can also offer other reconditioned/new parts for both the British/Dutch Shunters (powered by English Electric 6KT engines) & other types of locomotive (loc), Industrial & Mainline.

In conjunction with our industry partners, we can offer the following;

  • Locomotive maintenance & repairs - Industrial & Mainline.
  • Rail equipment training.
  • Turn-key locomotive/rolling stock hire & lease packages - Industrial & Mainline.
  • Locomotive modifications (including retro-fitting with Radio Control).
  • Trackwork maintenance/modifications.
  • New & re-manufactured replacement parts.
  • Sales & purchase agents on on behalf of UK & overseas clients.

MiddlePeak often acts as both sales & purchase agents on on behalf of UK & overseas clients, with shipping arranged too. If your company has any redundant locomotives or other rail related equipment, please contact us - as we may be able to assist with disposal.
