Four Trains’ mes­sage

Rail (UK) - - Network News -

While the Four Trains event was “a bit of fun”, Rob McIntosh, Net­work Rail’s Manag­ing Direc­tor on the Lon­don North Eastern and East Mid­lands Route, said there was also a se­ri­ous mes­sage.

“Be­hind all of this the East Coast Main Line has lost pro­file na­tion­ally. It’s over its time for in­vest­ment. This in­tro­duces that talks are needed.”

He said that NR de­ci­sion­mak­ers and Govern­ment of­fi­cials will have seen the ECML mak­ing pos­i­tive head­lines, and will have seen the fu­ture.

“The tim­ings are not a co-in­ci­dence,” he added.
