JSD granted non passenger train licence.
After 18 months of hard work; in February 2015 JSD Research & Development Ltd were granted a Non Passenger Train Licence
We have been supplying specialist services to Network Rail for more than ten years, the biggest of our activities is the operation of the Network Rail owned MPV (Multi-Purpose Vehicle) track spraying fleet, designed to spray the immediate track and cess areas with herbicides to counteract any weed growth according to defined growing seasons.
JSD now plan, maintain, drive and operate the eight national weed spraying trains. We are the only company in the UK that are currently capable of delivering this unique and complete service to the railways as a package. This is because we have set out to recruit and train staff with the particular sets of skills needed to fulfil this requirement.
