Our extensive facilities in Doncaster occupy 22 acres. The site has direct rail links with the national network and first-class motorway links. We also provide a total range of off-site services at our customers’ own facilities, which can be located anywhere in the UK.
Whatever the project, we focus at all times on quality and safety.
Passenger rolling stock
Our fully-trained maintenance staff have experience of all types of overhaul.
We regularly undertake C4 and C6 heavy maintenance to coaches, diesel multiple and electric multiple units in addition to overhauling bogies, wheel sets and brakes. Our equipment includes comprehensive lifting facitlties capable of handling all rolling stock. Whatever the project we work to the very highest standards whilst minimising vehicle downtimes.
Winning and keeping passengers is as much about appearance and comfort as it is about ensuring trains run on time. Today vehicles need to look good and reflect care and commitment on the part of operators.
