About us

HNRC is a leading storage, leasing and maintenance of locomotives company based in Worksop, Nottinghamshire, with workshops in Staveley and Worksop. Prior to 2010 we also recovered valuable spares from scrapped railway vehicles, either on the vehicle owners’ site, or at the European Metal Recycling scrapyard in Kingsbury.

Such has been the growth of the company that we have expanded with the acquisition of a 15-acre site in Worksop, including the wagon repair depot from DB Cargo Ltd for light/heavy maintenance and the cold and warm storage of rolling stock.

The company serves a wealth of customers and rail sites across the UK, having developed a workforce of industry experts, with the ability to provide an exceptional technical knowledge and service.


Our thorough knowledge of all aspects of security ensure that your locomotives are in safe hands with a comprehensive range of services. This ranges from manned guarding and security guards, 24-hour guard dog patrol, through to CCTV, fencing and alarm systems.

We understand just how important security is and take great pride in looking after your assets as though they are our own.

All our staff are trained to the highest standards to ensure they are capable of reacting to each and every eventuality.
