1985 Bedford BRUFF Road Railer
1985 British Rail Emergency Rail Rescue Vehicle
About this creation


This is a British Rail Bedford TL lorry with a rail conversion fitted by BRUFF.
As far as I know they were built between 1984 and 1986.
These Emergency Rail Rescue Vehicles were used for assisting with de-railed trains.
I don't really know an awful lot about them because there isn't much information on the internet about them (not even wikipedia).
I do remember seeing these parked up in the Southampton area when I first joined the railway back in the early nineties but I never actually saw one in use.
I recently saw a picture of one on the internet and that sparked a few memories and inspired me to build this.
I've never seen inside a BRUFF so I let my imagination rule with it's design.
Hope you enjoy looking at it. Please feel free to comment and rate.



Inside the crew cab there are messing facilities. This was based on the old P&E lorries we had at my old depot. There is a sink, fridge and hot plate. As you can see there is room for 3 crew.








This vehicle is usually used for assisting with de-railed trains but I've utilised it for other tasks as you can see here. The vehicle carries equipment for general track maintenance, which also makes this vehicle more fun to play with.

This would be a great addition to any Lego train set, with loads of palyability and fun. It would make a great commercial Lego set. We see vehicles like this quite a lot where I live, as the Friog cliff line & Barmouth bridge need a lot of looking after.
