Gemini Rail Services operates Wolverton Works which is owned by St  Modwen the property developer. They have outline planning consent to demolish the Works and have to apply for detailed planning consent by November 2021 to enable the demolition to commence. As it stands, Gemini Rail Services are looking to remain in existing buildings such as the Lifting Shop, West repair and the former timber shop.  

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.
