Motion text

That this House congratulates Gibson's Engineering, a father and son duo company, on reopening the famous St Rollox depot, known as The Caley; notes that the historic St Rollox Locomotive Works, established in 1856 by the Caledonian Railway, was the central hub of Scotland's locomotive industry, operating for 163 years until its closure in 2019; recognises the hard work and determination all involved in the revitalisation of this historic landmark as a train engineering facility; and shares their ambition to see significantly larger-scale employment of engineers, coachbuilders, project managers and apprentices in the north of Glasgow.
