A copy of Railwatch was buried in the foundations of the new Eastcroft train maintenance depot at Nottingham in November. RDS North Midlands membership secretary Malcolm Goodall, left, also put the latest RDS book Developing Rail in the time capsule. Graham Siberry of Railtrack and Central Trains' new managing director Nick Brown, right, told how the £2million project was being built by NorWest Holst, and financed by Railtrack for Central Trains, which would pay for using it by lease charges. By Christmas, the steel framework was complete, roof and wall cladding nearly finished, and interior work progressing rapidly. The new depot will facilitate maintenance of Central's growing fleet of diesel multiple units used on the intensive network of services radiating from Nottingham.
