Rail is a key driver of economic growth in Scotland. We will employ 300 people servicing and maintaining trains across Scotland by the end of 2019.

Scotland Skills

Our historic Craigentinny depot in Edinburgh will be upgraded to become our state-of-the-art centre for excellence for train maintenance for our fleet of Class 385 commuter trains.

Our train maintenance experts will use the latest diagnostic technology to provide a full and customised service for train operators.

We are teaching our Scottish railway staff vital engineering and technical skills. We employ apprentices and partner with local schools and colleges to attract people from diverse backgrounds. We are inspiring the next generation to enter the rail industry, working both at our sites and along the local supply chain where we source parts and services.
