Bigjigs Rail Help Get Dawlish Back on Track

February 6th, 2014 | Posted by Sam Ireland in Bigjigs Rail

The Big Crane Construction Team from Bigjigs Rail has been drafted in to help Network Rail and Great First Western fix railway lines after the recent storms.

The destruction of the railway line connecting Devon and Cornwall to the rest of the UK has been badly damaged by the recent bad weather, with the sea wall protecting the railway line at Dawlish being washed away, exposing the line and leaving it hanging in mid-air.


Network Rail has claimed that the line will take a minimum of six weeks to repair with costs set to soar into the millions. Up to 150ft (46m) of railway track was destroyed and Dawlish Station was also damaged on Wednesday.

Bigjigs Rail’s, Big Crane Construction team, have been brought in to assist Network Rail in the operating of Britain’s rail infrastructure during these stormy times. By bringing in the Bigjigs Rail team, the cost is set to dramatically reduce from millions to just £31.99 and they are expected to help repair the track quickly too!


A spokesman from the Bigjigs Rail team said “Our main priority is to protect the line from another big weather front that is due this weekend, and thereafter help fix the line so that passengers can once again enjoy this magnificent stretch of track!”

Bigjigs Rail have also promised to kindly donate some toys to sea front homes that have been damaged and affected by the sea wall collapse in Dawlish. If you know of any families please contact
