Network rail outlayed a tidy sum on this mobile LOWS equitment some say hundreds of thousands of pounds,our 2 kits are just gathering dust and cluttering up the stores and have been for the last 2 years or so,do other delivery units use theirs??
yes ours were failing safe 8 times out of 10 when we started using them,they were binned awaiting modifications,but 2 years down the line...Never even seen it. We never got any LOWS kit, it was always said it was under test. Wasn't it quite unreliable due to the radio frequencies?
To be fair, though, surely a system which was even simpler to set up but much much more immune to error, could be a real benefit in reducing posessions or increasing the fulfillment of minor works, no?
