Construction has now begun on the lucrative HS2 project, with rail pushers set to play a big role.
Phase one of the works will create a high-speed rail line between London and the Midlands, with a shift from enabling works, scheme design and preparatory work towards full construction of the railway.
Battery-powered tugs are a vital cog in the construction of many aspects of trains, allowing a single worker to move heavy loads across shop floors.
