Railtour Maintenance Team

Ian B. Graeme R. Dave McL.

The Railtour maintenance team requires many disciplines. There are welders, metalworkers, mechanics, painters, glazers, woodworkers, greasers, electricians and others too many to mention.

Wheelsets need changed.Reg in 3096 Brake blocks need changed (very frequently).

During the winter, before the start of the new season, the whole train is given a comprehensive mechanical and electrical inspection.  Robin Nelson and his electrical team do the Jim Grady

electrical checks to both the 24v battery system and the 800v ETH wiring. 

The mechanical team are Ian Boettcher, Dave MacLaren, Muir McDougall and Bill + buckeye Bill Hoy (The Safety Officer).  The body repair department is Jim Grady, Alastair MacLean and James Robertson.  Everybody "mucks in" Muir when it comes to painting a coach. Matt Miller is our resident plumber and gas man.
