ST. MODWEN PROPERTIES PLC (“St. Modwen” or “the Company”) update on Wolverton Works, September 2018

In August, Knorr Bremse AG announced that it is to sell Knorr Bremse RailServices Ltd to Mutares AG. The Wolverton Works site remains in the ownership of Key Property Investments Ltd (the joint venture company owned by St. Modwen and Salhia) and Knorr Bremse RailServices Ltd will remain the tenant and operator of the site. St. Modwen has held positive preliminary discussions with Mutares about their future intentions for the Wolverton Works site and looks forward to working with them to deliver the regeneration of the site, following the recently upheld planning consent. Will the Royal Train remain at Wolverton?

Above shows todays Royal Train inside Wolverton Works. Below, an inside look at The Royal Train 70 years ago thanks to John Peters. The ironing board achieved fame at the launch of The Full Works when Leo Coleman regailed the audience at Milton Keynes Museum about why Queen Elizabeth was not amused with it on the 1977 Royal Train. This will be told at all talks in memory of Leo - including the Royal ironing board story!
