Network Rail Infrastructure Limited

P/IAS/20130426/01

Following an incident on 21 April 2013 when a road-rail vehicle (RRV) was involved in a 'runaway' while being on-tracked near Queen Street tunnel, Glasgow it ran down a gradient , struck a scaffold injuring a workman, before coming to rest in Queen Street Station. On 26 April, ORR (and RAIB) examined the machine involved, and another, subsequently finding that the model of RRV was not fitted with the effective engineering means to prevent an unbraked state occurring during on and off tracking. As there are a number of locations on the GB rail network where there is a sufficient gradient that RRV's could move uncontrolled or runaway, the Notice was served prohibiting the on and off tracking of these machines on such gradients, until suitable engineering controls were provided. 26 Apr 2013 26 Apr 2013 Complied
