Rail Operations Group has signed a five-year deal with Angel Trains to move multiple units and High Speed Trains across the UK. The moves will be in connection with train maintenance, refurbishment, fleet cascade programmes and rolling stock shortages. This includes the operation of ‘warm storage’ work such as keeping Class 442s operational at Eastleigh Works and Ely.
The contract covers Plymouth to Inverness, and includes several routes, depots and facilities.
“This demonstrates the industry’s need of a dedicated supplier to manage and operate train movements on behalf of the rolling stock engineering and leasing sectors”.
