    Thanks space Phoenix , i think there is a train cleaning facility there, but I'm not from the rail industry so I'm just looking for some guidance.

    The Northam facility is a maintenance facility operated by Siemens.

    The job description for Salisbury indicates a maximum travel time of forty five minutes, so not sure if I'm applicable living in Southampton, from what I've read on this forum Fratton has a depot just wanting to know others in close proximity.

    No SWT depot based in Southampton.

    Northam is run by siemens, but has SWT drivers based there, but no guards.

    SWT depots in area are Salisbury, fratton and Bournemouth and basingstoke.

    Depending where you live in soton, you could be within 45mins of one of those as soton is a big place.

    Just seen on their website they're recruiting Commercial Guards for Basingstoke at the moment if that's any help? To be honest Salisbury is probably nearer anyway....Easily doable with 45-minutes, surely?
