Rail Forum Vehicle Maintenance & Obsolescence event goes from strength to strength

Rail Forum is delighted to welcome Gemini Rail Services as a fourth and final event partner for our Vehicle Maintenance & Obsolescence event on 28 September 2023, alongside Belvoir Rail, Train Bits & More and TVS Rail Spares.

With 118 bookings and counting, this half day event in Crewe will provide delegates with a view on both obsolescence and maintenance from a range of speakers across the rolling stock sector, including:

  • Stuart Broadbent, Chair of the Institute of Obsolescence Management
  • Ian Rawlings, Head of Profession – Vehicles, TFL
  • Shakil Ismail, Head of Fleet, Eversholt Rail
  • Peter Broadley, MD Rolling Stock & Services, Alstom
  • Alex Greig-Cooper, Fleet Development Manager, East Midlands Railway

With two sessions, the popular Rail Forum Roll Call, panel Q&As and networking opportunities, plus an optional post-event tour of Arriva Traincare’s nearby facility, this event is ideal for anyone looking to support vehicle maintenance or is keen to understand obsolescence and approaches which can help deliver vehicle performance.

Lewis Melia, Key Accounts Manager at Gemini Rail Services said: “Gemini Rail Services are pleased to be an event partner at Rail Forum’s upcoming Vehicle Maintenance and Obsolescence event.

“As a significant provider of maintenance and overhaul services to the UK rail market, with a 50,000m² Wolverton facility that can hold up to 86 vehicles externally, ensuring compliant components are continually used is critical. Where this is not possible, a key aspect of the supply agreement can include obsolescence management. Gemini Rail Services welcome the opportunity to be a key part of the event and thank Rail Forum for the invitation.”

Cat Appleby, Membership & Engagement Director at Rail Forum, said: “We are pleased to bring this event which will provide valuable insight and networking for vehicle builders, owners, operators and supply chain with obsolescence solutions or maintenance offerings.”

The event also provides an exhibition zone which, alongside our event partners, will feature the following members:

  • RTS Solutions
  • Diamond Rail Services
  • CoMech Metrology
  • Dyer Engineering
  • API Capacitors
  • LPA
