Rail Challenge


Innovating the future of trains

The Railway Challenge is an IMechE-hosed event that takes place every year and invites teams from across the world. Teams are required to operate as if they were an engineering consultancy firm tasked with designing and manufacturing a locomotive to fit on a 10 1/4” gauge railway for a large corporation. The IMechE Challenge is a fantastic opportunity for aspiring teams to compete and put their skills, expertise, and knowledge to use in designing and manufacturing a miniature locomotive.
