Traversers are used to move rail vehicles between workshops and despite what St Modwen contend, this is the most efficient way of shunting vehicles around the site. Any new railway works will incorporate a traverser, as Hitachi has done at their new IEP factory near Darlington. These images show how a vehicle is moved between sheds and out of the Works on low loaders. CAF at Newport is the latest Railway Works to install a traverser.
