Franchise News

It has been announced that the present ScotRail franchise will be extended by a year to 31st March, 2015 pending the outcome of the inquiries into the West Coast Main Line franchising debacle in England, although there is no suggestion that the method proposed for Scotland is at fault. As you may know, the Caledonian sleepers are to be separated from the rest of ScotRail. It is now proposed that the former will go out to tender in spring, 2013 and the latter in the summer.
