Gemini Rail Services has been formed to operate Wolverton Works and Springburn in Glasgow from November 2018, but closure plans for the latter were announced the following month. Knorr Bremse Rail Services Ltd accounts lodged at Companies House show that a loss in excess of £50million was reported in the five years of their oeration. We wish the new owners of the business every success and Gemini is contacting the local community, a welcome development.
The Apprentice Training School was arranged in 1953 and thanks to the 6201 Locomotive Society, we can share the paperwork concerning the finances with you here. And the man who ran the school, Peter Hill with the official hand made crest made to commemorate the opening in 1954. Very sad to report that eter passed away in June 2018.
