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.

The Wolverton175 website was dedicated to the 175th anniversary in September 2013 and subsequent events at The Works deserve an independent digital outlet.  


Given the 150 years of Royal Trains at Wolverton, it seemed approriate to use


The images here depict the official book, an illustration of a 'Bloomer' being erected in 1860 and the official Wolverton 175 logo.


Phillip Webb continues to produce artwork detailing Wolverton Works such as on the lower left. Lower right is a 1972 image of the main entrance to the Works.
