Interesting. They talk a good game but let's see. Hope this won't mean job losses.

Talking about more services. At Waterloo already trains literally leave every two minutes. The one downside to SWTs has always been they only have one London Terminal.

The improvements that they list, which they seem to imply are being brought in by the new company, were being made anyway weren't they?

The new rolling stock for example is just the Class 707 that is already being prepared for entry into service?

I rate the SWT service highly so it seems daft to take the franchise away from Stagecoach , Promises are one thing and delivery of them is another in a 7 year period questionable , Undoubtedly industrial unrest/action will take place after years of peace .
Where is the money going to come from in a time of slowing passenger growth ?

I thought this South Western Franchise was until 2020 when the DFT had already said they are taking it over?

That has changed then. When I read about the Franchise last year it was said this was only until 2020. Obviously 3 years was far too ambitious to implement all the changes they wanted, probably in part due to what they have seen with the actions on Southern.

Mate it is going to happen. As soon as I saw just Stagecoach and First were listed to take it over I knew First would get it. If I could find my posts on this thread from the time it would pretty much confirm that.

It's all just a massive stitch up. I use South West regularly, their trains run to time most of the time, they are always clean and tidy as are their stations and generally they give off a good vibe. I see nothing from how Stagecoach have run the Franchise over themail years to suggest they shouldn't keep hold of it. Therefore they are effectively being stripped of it to suit others ill means.

No more cheap megatrain tickets then. Who sets the fares for SWT, govt? Can't get weekend advance tickets atm which is an expensive pain.

First group aren't a nice company to work for. Quite brutal and draconian in their ways. Was over the moon when they lost the scotch rail franchise

Ah, that's more like it. 07:12 CAT:LBG cancelled. Can't even change to get one at Upper Warlingham as that's been cancelled. It's been a while since we had Southern Excuse Bingo. Look forward to my 1 delay repay
