Excellence and ingenuity delivered on time. At Harsco Rail, we accept nothing less.



A Harsco driver’s railway route knowledge capability is second to none.

Our drivers know every inch of Britain’s railways. They are highly trained and are available now to provide 24-hour cover for rerouted drivers.

While high-speed passenger trains are zooming by, our drivers travel the length and breadth of the UK at a steady pace as they navigate our grinders and stoneblowers through the network, taking in every switch and signal.

They have intimate knowledge of speed restrictions, braking distances, emergency protocols and health and safety procedures. Their training ensures they stay mentally alert to possible dangers on the track, allowing them to react quickly and calmly to hazards.
