ScotRail has installed new equipment at Yoker train depot.

Upgraded Control Emission Toilet (CET) discharge facilities have been installed at Yoker stabling depots allowing more trains to be serviced simultaneously.

Since 2015, ScotRail has expanded its train fleet with the arrival of brand-new Class 385s electric trains, refurbished Inter7City high-speed trains and refurbished Class 320s.

The additional trains and growing popularity of rail travel put pressure on existing equipment to cope with the demand.

Yoker depot is home to many electric trains used in the Strathclyde area.

ScotRail Project Manager Alisdair Tennant said: “The installation of the new equipment means more trains can now be serviced at the same time.

“This will allow the depot team to get trains back in passenger service faster and with the high level of cleanliness our customers expect.”

The project was funded through Network Rail’s Control Period 5 Scottish Network Improvement Fund, which delivered enhancements to the rail network and services.
