Class 47 lift

Moveright International were recently asked to assist with the lifting of a complete Class 47 body off its bogies to allow a wheelset change to take place.
Having plenty of experience in this field, we felt that the safest and most efficient way to undertake the work was to jack the locomotive utilising our MFD hydraulic lifting system rather than having the expense and risk of two cranes undertaking a tandem lift.

We have a complete range of locomotive lifting brackets to suit all classes of diesel locomotives in use ranging from Class 08 shunters to Class 56 and 58 heavy freight locomotives as well as the most modern Class 66 and 67 engines.

47105

47105 stands in the car park on jacks at Toddington on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway with the refurbished bogie seen in place and prior to the locomotive body being lowered back down. This image shows the simplicity in lifting locomotives safely.
