About 30 years ago the Chief Civil Engineer of the Swedish Railways had a simple, but brilliant idea. Frustrated by the time which it took to move material from depot to work site on the railway, he initiated the design of a lorry which could travel most of the way on the road, mount the track at a level crossing and complete its journey by rail. Thus the SRS road rail lorry was born, and the idea was soon extended to include a comprehensive range of mounted equipments enabling these vehicles to be used for a multiplicity of tasks. The road rail lorry added a new dimension to railway infrastructure engineering.
SRS Road Rail lorries move men, materials and equipment from depot to work site on the railway in the shortest possible time.
Once at the work site they provide the tools to do the job.
SRS Road Rail trucks are standard commercial trucks, usually Volvo, which have been converted to the road rail role. Thus a world wide network of servicing stations exists.
