Transfer Car

Compatibility Engineering, Detail Design, Prototype Manufacture and Production Run

Phase 1 – Compatibility Engineering

In 2017, a requirement for further Transfer Cars to supplement the existing fleet was identified. However, with the lack of information available, BAE Systems engaged with Clarke Chapman Ltd (CCL), who were part of the original supply group back in the 1980’s, to undertake the concept design of a Transfer Car, with the aim to produce further cars that would operate within the existing fleet, whilst maintaining a degree of interchangeability of critical components such as the hydraulic cylinder and the wheel sets. CCL also designed the associated Mode Select Panel (MSP), a Control Supply Panel (CSP) and a Transformer Panel (TP) using current available components but again compatible with the existing fleet.
