Premier Rail Pits prefabricated steel maintenance pits make a significant contribution towards enhancing workshop productivity, offering a safe, well-lit environment for your technicians.

There are five pit types in the Premier Rail Pit range, each designed to cater for various maintenance of the bogies and undercarriage of any type of loco or rolling stock. We can also work with you to create a bespoke product tailored to your requirements.
