Breakdown and recovery services

Every year, DB Cargo UK’s Breakdown and Recovery Team responds to more than 110 incidents, providing a rapid and effective recovery service to keep the UK’s rail network moving.

Our emergency teams operate 24 hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week, 365 days-a-year and are based at Didcot in Oxfordshire, Wigan in Lancashire and Millerhill in Scotland.

We operate a fleet of vehicles and cranes, some of which can operate on both road and rail, meaning we can reach even the most remote areas of the network.
