It is our great pleasure to advise you of the forthcoming product launch of the new Clayton Equipment LoCo™ tunnelling locomotive. The LoCo™ is a "World’s First of Type" machine packed with innovative design features that enhance performance, efficiency and safety. Protected by a patent pending, this machine has been uniquely designed to give your operation a competitive advantage through superior performance at a lower cost but without compromise to safety.
Following the successful contract award to manufacture seven CD40, 40 tonne diesel locomotives, Clayton Equipment has started to deliver them to site. Working in conjunction with the client, Clayton has designed the CD40 locomotive to match their unique specification and performance criteria.
BT Openreach engineers have been busy recovering redundant Cold War era cable from an underground tunnel network in London recently. Teaming up with a specialist mining company, BT hired a small 1.75 tonne Clayton locomotive to help reclaim the heavy copper cables from deep within the six-and-a-half mile tunnels and transport them to the surface.
