First of all all workers that work on track need a pts (personal track safety) everyone needs one but then road rail drivers need a CPCS Road/Rail red or blue card or Sentinel OTP card to operate plant on track. Also as a gigarailer driver i was sent to rexquote http://www.rexquote.co.uk/ to do training on the gigarailer spent 3 days there and now its all I drive on projects as i am so used to them. also the pay is very good pays the bills etc :D

of tea although some people love it and would do nothing else,when on bcl the rail men hated doing shifts on civils.

There are a few for sale out there but not sure where best bet is to search in google.
