The Chieftain Rail Trailer range enables the cost efficient transport of goods and equipment to worksites and rail stations. These trailers are ideal for mainline rail work and can be manufactured to suit narrow gauge, standard gauge or broad gauge, track gauges. All come complete with Interfleet RIS 1530-PLT Issue 6 approval. The Rail Trailer can be easily towed behind properly equipped vehicles or machines, or it can also be pushed along the track.
With these trailers, Chieftain can supply a “made to suit” hitch for your towing vehicle and two trailers can also be connected together by using a 5 metre long tow bar. Ballast boxes can also be added to allow the safe transport of loose materials such as stone, sand, muck and ballast. This trailer is available with optional clip on ramps and adjustable support for legs for the safe loading and unloading of excavators.
These trailers also come well equipped with a 2 line air braking system and twist locks to allow for the transportation of containers or a ballast box. Also fitted is a direction detection LED lighting system, a steel toolbox with lock and key and centre floor lifting eyes so that the trailer can be easily lifted on and off the track.
It is also shot blasted to guarantee high quality and long-lasting resistance against corrosion. It is finished with 2-pack epoxy primer and paint, with the choice of a colour to suit your own personal preference.
All Chieftain Rail Trailers come complete with current Network Rail approvals and are also approved by Deutsche Bahn for use on German railway lines.
