Frost Truck came about in November to address ice and snow on the con rail (third rail). The Wessex area wanted a more flexible approach to the MPV’s used to scrape and spray antifreeze onto the third rail. So at very short notice Aquarius were able to trial a system suitable for use on the Rail Trucks. By December we had fielded two Frost Trucks and manned them on a 24 hour basis. This trial ended on 10th January during which the Frost Trucks exceeded their performance expectations. A period of appraisal and data gathering is now under way to enable a more long term approach to manning and widening the utilisation beyond ice and snow on the third rail.
