Angel Trains is proud of its strong relationships with all nineteen franchised Train Operating Companies (TOCs) and both open access operators.
We are committed to our role of providing vital investment to rolling stock on the UK Network. Since privatisation we have invested around £3.5 billion in the UK rail sector, making us one of the largest investors in the industry. We manage assets across every stage of the life cycle, with a number of trains in production following recent purchase and others undertaking continued service operation works to ensure they are both safe and suitable for the demands of the future.
Angel Trains invests on average £80 million per annum in fleet maintenance and refurbishment, indirectly supporting employment of approximately 2,500 people in UK maintenance depots.
Our workforce consists of over 100 individuals who are specialists in many aspects of train leasing, from finance and engineering to commercial and customer service. From our offices in London and Derby, Angel Trains provides expertise in the procurement of maintenance for our leased trains and know-how on the purchase of new rolling stock. In addition to our own resources we have a network of suppliers and contractors, from large companies through to specialist SMEs.
Angel Trains looks forward to continuing to work with its customers and suppliers for the benefit of passengers and the continued success of the UK rail industry.
