Motion S5M-00375: McCulloch Rail in America

08 Jun 2016

That the Parliament congratulates Billy and Danny McCulloch of McCulloch Rail on the news of their contract to provide the New York Subway system with brand new rail laying machines; understands that, until the introduction of the McCullochs’ new machine, laying track in the New York subway had been handled manually, which had led to a high level of injuries for workers due to the backbreaking nature of the work; understands that, alongside this, there have been notes of interest from metros across the United States, including Washington DC; looks forward to seeing what it is sure will be the ongoing success of McCulloch Rail both in Scotland and abroad, and considers that Scotland is well able to lead the world in engineering and in other fields.
