Mention Doncaster around the world and the chances are that people will think railways. The very first locomotive works were established in the heart of the town centre in 1853 by the Great Northern Railway, transforming Doncaster from a peaceful Georgian market town into an engineering superpower.

Doncaster remains an important railway town to this day and was chosen to be the site of the new National College for High-Speed Rail, which opens in September this year.

In partnership with Business Doncaster, Next Generation Rail site visits will include options to visit.

 

Hitachi Rail Europe

Hitachi Rail Europe (HRE), the company building and maintaining new intercity trains, is on schedule to employ 250 people at their newly built Doncaster depot.

The depot is hiring a brand new team to maintain new fleets of intercity trains inspired by Japanese bullet trains, which are due to start running next year, connecting northern cities to London and Scotland.
