The new franchise is being let as a management contract where ticket revenues are passed directly to the government rather than retained by Govia, the train company said.

It is the first time a rail franchise has been awarded under such terms.

A Department for Transport (DfT) spokesman said train fare and season ticket pricing policy would be unaffected.

The government will pay 8.9bn to Govia over the course of the seven year franchise with the government expecting to receive around 12.4bn back in ticket sales from Govia by the end of the franchise.

The DfT spokesman said the new contract reduced the chances of rail operators "handing back the keys" to the government as happened with the East Coast mainline.

From what I learnt on a one day course at the bluebell it's very hard physical work but great fun if a bit frightening knowing that one wrong move and you could break a 130 year old bit of kit

We have a rdw ban from monday to friday, so the only overtime we can do is the only saturday off every 3 weeks, or sundays. Rather than pay an overtime rate, they believe they will cover them by restricting the overtime to weekends.

Tony B doesn't ring a bell but then again those days are a bit of a blur if you know what I mean (good old days and all that). At Norwood I was only a secondman so didn't have much to do with inspectors.

I was at Edinburgh waverly 92 til 09 and am now at a new depot that opened in 2009 in Bathgate. That was a free move being a new depot and about 20 minutes from my house. I live in Stirling and tried moving to Stirling depot about 10 years ago but was told i had no more moves as I'd used it under BR in 92 moving from London to Scotland. Never had a move since privatisation apart from the freebie. Bit of a sore subject but kept hitting a brick wall when I kicked off about it.

You'd have thought under privatisation you might have got a new Clause 8(ii). My mate keeps trying to persuade me to move depot but I don't really want to waste my move, rather do my time then move out a bit to be honest.

Is this an acceptable compromise between nationalisation and privatisation? Sounds like quite a good idea to me.

I spent 2 months at selhurst before getting my appointment at Vic. Never drove a train for them but I get accused of heavy braking all the time. That was how we did it in those days i suppose. Creature of habit me.

What depot are you at croydon exile?
