First Great Western keeps it's franchise...
« on: September 19, 2013, 06:27:23 PM »
First Great Western keeps it's franchise... I feel that's down to practicality rather than choice, what happened to the competition then ?

To be honest, I don't know too much about this - anyone like to explain the hows and whys ?  ???
If it's got rails... you have my full, undivided attention - Steam, diesel and electric, 'tis all good !

Nothing to do with practicality everything to do with politics. Can't have another franchise falling into state control and making more money for the treasury - someone might spot the pattern.
