RMS Locotec Locomotive Hire

Giving you all the power you need

The RMS Locotech Locomotive Hire Division can provide locomotives and supporting maintenance to assist you in the efficient operation of your facility.


Locomotives can be customized to customer-specific needs including increased locomotive weight and radio remote control options.


The locomotive maintenance provided is supported by a Team of courteous and professional engineers. These engineers develop and effectively manage a preventive maintenance program designed around the specific usage of each locomotive wherever it is located. The Team is also equipped to repair damage sustained by any leased locomotive. These services are provided on an on-call basis, 24/7!


Both long term and short term leases are available and we’re capable of shipping a locomotive on short notice for those unexpected increased workloads or for planned maintenance projects.

RMS Locotec Locomotive Hire Division owns and operates the single largest fleet of industrial shunting locomotives in the United Kingdom.


We provide locomotives to both heavy industry and major rail infrastructure projects and are capable of customising shunting locomotives to customer-specific needs. Whatever your shunting locomotives require, we’re there and capable of fulfilling those needs.
