The new building covers 300,000 square feet and is being described as a 'significant' base for the rail company's fleet of road vehicles.

Network Rail's National National Delivery Service supplies 150,000 parts for trains and infrastructure, and the new site was chosen for its close location to the A45 and close links to railway lines.
