We have created dual-branded polos to commemorate this achievement, recognising this incredible effort from the two parties.
Mark Pumphrey, Asset Manager at VTG said: “The VTG-Yellow Rail working relationship commenced back in September 2018 and has grown significantly since then. Yellow Rail has demonstrated their capability to provide cost-effective, safety critical services to VTG and has done so across a number of different and complex bogie types.
“Having broken through the 1,000-bogie barrier in September, we fully expect to see bogie number 1,100 completed before the end of the year. This is a great performance from Yellow Rail in conjunction with VTG’s Service Delivery Team and our wagon maintainers who plan and carry out the exchanges respectively, thus ensuring that there’s a steady flow of dirty units being returned to Derby or overhaul”.
Andy Kevins, Managing Director of Yellow Rail added: “We are very proud of reaching this milestone with Europe’s No.1 wagon asset owner and for the opportunity VTG gave the company 5 years ago.”
