Gemini Rail Services was formed to operate Wolverton and Springburn in Glasgow from November 2018 but in December 2018 the proposed closure of Springburn was announced. The business, when operated by Knorr Bremse Rail Services Ltd, lost tens of millions of pounds according to accounts lodged at Companies House. They show the parent comany had loaned over £53million at the end of 2017. We wish the new owners of the business every success. Website updated on 14 May 2019.
