Chiltern railways drywash by Impact worx

Chiltern Railways operates commuter/regional rail passenger services from its Central London terminus at London Marylebone along the M40 corridor to destinations in Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Warwickshire, as well as long-distance services to the West Midlands along two routes.


Services on the Chiltern Main Line run from London Marylebone to Birmingham Snow Hill, Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford, with some peak-hour services to Kidderminster.

Chiltern Railways also runs trains on the London to Aylesbury Line to Aylesbury (with some trains terminating at Aylesbury Vale Parkway instead), on the Princes Risborough to Aylesbury and Oxford to Bicester branch lines.

" For many years Chiltern Railways have grappled with the issue of being able to have operatives physically wash the outside of trains with consistency, due to environmental constraints that limited us to only a few locations where the work could take place.  


A solution was sought over time. In 2023, we were delighted to have come across a new, Dry Wash provide system that could be an exterior train cleaning alternative to the Chiltern Fleet, which can be done at all of our sites and isn’t hindered by environmental factors.


The system, which isn’t labour intensive requires an operative to apply a purpose-designed Dry Wash Polish to the coach bodywork of trains before wiping away, in the process removing dirt deposits.


The materials and methodology for this new innovation are supplied to Chiltern Railways by THOMS Trading, through IMPACT WORX Ltd, the innovation provides high-quality cleans to our fleet of trains, and in the process helps us to overcome environmental issues that have been prevalent and problematic for years.
