Radio Solutions was happy to work with Llangollen Railway supplying two-way radios for its engineering team.

The engineering department support and maintain the steam locomotives and rolling stock that operate at Llangollen Heritage Railway in Denbighshire, North Wales.

With no existing communication system in place, tough, durable two-way radios were needed to provide reliable communications and ensure the safety of the engineering team.

Radio Solutions recommended the Motorola T80 Extreme as an optimal solution.

Julie Jones said: “The radios have worked well so far, they are robust enough to cope with being used in a very tough and dirty environment.”
