West Coast Mainline Franchise


Recommended Posts

Hot off the press. The decision to award the West Coast Main Line franchise to FirstGroup has been cancelled due to flaws in the way the process was conducted. That is...cancelled, not postponed. Civil servants have been suspended. Back to the drawing board. Something stinks here. Corruption?...surely not....Get Branson out at any price? Maybe. I wonder who has a finger in the pie of FirstGroup? These procurement processes have been a mess, look at public utilities and the NHS and the whole of public transport ...... buyer beware!

Finally several years later Branson has copped out and First Group take over the franchise in December 2019.

Fucking fantastic news. First are the new BR, only with poorer service, of course.
