See the time lapse video, produced by Volker, of the new train depot in Doncaster being built.

The new depot will employ 250 people and maintain trains for Virgin Trains East Coast and Transpennine Express, which are due to start running next year.

Hitachi has invested £80 million in the Doncaster site to create a facility that is clean, light and packed with the most advanced industry technology. The primary role of the depot is to make sure that each train, having carried thousands of people a day, is ready to offer passengers the same service the next day. 

So far 60 people have joined the new depot team, with the next wave of recruitment underway, focussing on hiring local engineers with experience in mechanical and/or electrical work.
