Sperry’s Track Recording Coach to Sweden

2007 saw Moveright International transport a specially adapted coach on behalf of Sperry Rail to Gotherburg in Sweden. The coach, which has been specially modified to run as part of a track test train was therefore of extreme importance. The coach has to make the trip by sea but due to loading height regulations, has to be transported separately from its bogies. Moveright International provided their specialist jacking support team to assist with the lift and loading.
