The Adaptable Carriage

42 Technology has developed the Adaptable Carriage concept to enable low density, high value freight to be carried on passenger rail carriages. The technology for this innovation will allow for the rapid and automated configuration of carriages between modes.

Deployment of the technology on appropriate UK rail routes will ease road congest, and is estimated to deliver additional revenues to the UK rail network in excess of £100M

42 Technology’s development of the concept is currently funded through FutureRailway’s ‘Tomorrow’s Train Design Today’ competition led by the Rail Safety & Standards Board in association with the Department for Transport. 42 Technology were selected one of three winning companies to receive a share of £2.2 million for the development of innovative rolling stock design concepts.
