Goodbye.. EAST COAST, Hello Virgin East Coast~Stagecoach..

.
1st March '15 - The East Coast rail route between London and Scotland has returned to private hands after more than five years in the public sector.

Services on the line have been operated by a Department for Transport (DfT) controlled company EAST COAST since November 2009.

From Sunday they are being run jointly by Virgin and Stagecoach, under the name Virgin Trains East Coast.

The DfT said the new franchise would mean "the best deal for passengers", but Labour criticised the move.

When franchise holder National Express pulled out in November 2009, the then Labour government took over the running of the line.

But the current coalition government had always intended to return it to the private sector.

G&W agrees to buy Freightliner Group..

International US short line holding group Genesee & Wyoming Inc announced an agreement to buy approximately 95% of the shares of Freightliner Group from Arcapita and other shareholders on February 25.

The acquisition is expected to close during the first quarter of 2015. G&W will pay £490m in cash and assume £8·5m in net debt and capitalised leases. Members of the existing Freightliner management team will retain a stake of approximately 5%, with G&W planning to own 100% by mid-2020.

According to Jack Hellmann, President & Chief Executive Officer of G&W Inc, ‘the acquisition of Freightliner is an excellent strategic fit. We are excited to be adding a world class intermodal and heavy haul franchise in the UK that will be the foundation of G&W’s European Region. Further, the overlap of our respective rail businesses in Australia and the Netherlands will unlock operating synergies and expand our presence in each of those markets.’

Class 91 111 "For the Fallen"..

Edinburgh 16th Dec '14 memorial event..

Update 20th Dec '14.. The specially-designed East Coast locomotive number 91 111, named ‘For The Fallen’, carries a livery filled with images, stories and tributes to regiments and people who served in them across the East Coast route.
A commemoration of Edinburgh’s own heroes of the First World War has taken place at Waverley Station. The memorial event was in front of East Coast’s locomotive 91111 ‘For The Fallen’, which included a livery filled with images, stories and tributes to regiments along the East Coast route and the people who served in them during the First World War.
The 16th Battalion The Royal Scots was raised by Sir George McCrae, a self made businessman and prominent political figure in Edinburgh, who was also a director of Heart of Midlothian Football Club – ‘Hearts’ to football fans in Scotland’s capital city. McCrae realised that if he could get players to join his battalion, supporters would join to serve alongside their sporting heroes.
