Newton Heath Train Centre Tour

Join Women in Rail North West, sponsored by Northern Trains Limited for a tour of Northern Rail’s Newton Heath Train Care Centre on 11 October 2023!

Have you ever wondered what goes on in a train care centre?

This half-day visit to the Train Care Centre will help to answer this question on a guided walking tour visiting several locations within the centre, including two maintenance sheds, followed by a Q&A / Networking session.

This is an opportunity to experience a working operational environment and speak with those who work there to find out more.

*Please note: PPE equipment is required for part of the tour (Safety Boots, Hi-Vis Vest, Safety Glasses, Bump Caps) – this will be provided if necessary. During this event, some time will be spent outdoors – please dress appropriately for the activity and weather conditions.*

Please note that there are only 10 spaces and these will be allocated at random.

Please register before 20 September 2023, to secure your place!

If you are allocated a space, this will be confirmed by email, no later than 25 September and you must confirm your attendance by 5pm Friday 29 September.

If you are allocated a space and are no longer able to attend, please let us know so that we can offer your space to someone else.
