New £46m Wigan home for trains provides jobs boost

At Springs Branch railway sidings in Ince-in-Makerfield, Network Rail is adapting an existing freight yard to stable and maintain 24 electric and eight diesel trains – creating almost 20 jobs in the process. The location provides easy access to the electrified rail network and the state-of-the-art depot will provide more flexibility for Northern to move their trains across the north overnight in preparation for services the next day. It will be brought into use from December 2019. Lauren Jones, scheme project manager at Network Rail said: “At Springs Branch sidings, we’re investing £46M to enhance an existing site by the West Coast main line by building brand new train maintenance facilities for Northern.

The 'Springs' of Spring Branch relates to New Springs.


I bet it was worse than the Wild West when Incers were working on the railroad up to almost Aspull
