Our Services

1. Rail Services

Rail Grinder AssemblyOur machining facilities produce a wide range of re-engineered components for railway maintenance machinery. These components have exhibited an ability to provide increased service life and durability over many hours of operation and have substantially reduced machine operating costs.

As well as supplying individual components we can provide complete fitting, overhaul and test services for major subassemblies such as:

  • Ballast tamper work heads
  • Recertification of elevated work platforms and boom lifts
  • Complete in service inspection of rolling stock
  • R1 & R2 wagon certification, painting and repairs.


2. Mechanical Restoration

Historic Steam RestorationWe have sound experience in the manufacture of replacement components for exhibits and working items for a range of historical machinery.
Examples of this include the complete manufacture of a tilting gun sight for a Howitzer cannon used in World War One through to the machining of three new crankshafts for Type 35 supercharged Bugatti racing cars.

At K & H Ainsworth Engineering we have unique expertise in the manufacture of traction engine and locomotive boilers.

We provide a total package commencing with a condition report on an original heritage item through to the design, drafting, certification and final construction of a new boiler. Boilers can be constructed to a traditional riveted design, fully welded or a combination of both methods to provide a cost effective replica of the original.
