IMechE Rail Challenge


The Warwick Rail Challenge team is a multi-disciplinary team of forth year engineering students who
are designing and building a 10 ¼” gauge locomotive to compete at the annual IMechE Railway

The IMechE Railway Challenge pits teams against eachother to create a locomotive and compete in a weekend long competition. This locomotive is publicly subjected to many complex engineering challenges, including its efficiency, sustainability,innovation and impact amongst the industry judges.

Our locomotive has been fully designed with a hydrogen fuel cell to deliver efficient, green and remarkably quiet energy, which we expect will generate a large amount of attention from local media and industry experts.
