TCL is able to provide services for the acceptance and registration of all types of railway rolling stock. TCL has been appointed as a Competent Person by a number of Railway Undertakings (see tab on ROGS and Interoperability) for a defined but wide scope of vehicle modifications, vehicle introductions and maintenance plan changes and implementation.
