Northern Rail win franchise extension

May 13, 2010

Congratulations to our friends at Northern Rail who have just been awarded a 2-year extension to their contract to run trains across the north of England.

The extension has been granted by the Department of Transport because of Northern’s record of improved punctuality and reliability – and I don’t think anyone would seriously disagree that things at Walkden have markedly improved since Northern took over in 2004. They’ve also been tremendously supportive of FOWS.

Northern will now be running our trains until September 2013.
