With industry changes occurring whereby rail franchising has been scrapped and management contracts have been taken over alongside the introduction of many new fleets into existing depots, there is increased focus on improving depots on relatively slim budgets. As many new vehicles are of similar technological standards, a lot of knowledge will be transferrable.
These new rail vehicles are being introduced and arriving into depots built for slam door stock. Attending this event will enable best practice to be shared between operators across the UK and further afield. This not only includes new fleets but is also applicable to improving maintenance arrangements for existing fleets as well.
