Date: 26/07/2019

A protest is being held outside a rail depot in Glasgow that is facing closure after 163 years. Work is due to dry up at the St Rollox 'Caley' rail site in Springburn, where ScotRail trains are maintained. In March owners Gemini Rail Services confirmed to workers their intention to close down the site. Campaigners have called for the Scottish government to nationalise the site, but the government insists nationalisation is not an option.
