LAKES RESCUE
Northern should be stripped of its franchise and replaced by “an operator who actually wants to run trains”, claims South Lakes MP Tim Farron. This follows the move by West Coast Railway Company to step in and operate Government-funded shuttles on the Oxenholme - Windermere branch from June 18, for a period of two weeks. DfT is paying £5,500 per day for the trains. Northern had suspended trains on the branch for the previous two weeks, and had cancelled
trains before the start of June, following the chaos caused by the introduction of the new May 20 timetable (RAIL 854).
Published fortnightly, RAIL brings you the best news, comment and analysis covering the full spectrum of rail industry activity - from Government policy and involvement to operations, maintenance and services provided by Network Rail, train operators and the wider industry.
