This headline from New Europe On-line: EU Update...
"UK’s rail transport interoperability with Europe’s mainland still lacks behind"
That's a bit bloody rich!
Coming, as it does, from a continent whose railways insists on deliberately building their trains so they don't fit our bridges, tunnels and platforms!
That is all.
This from Tommy Atkins...
Exciting news from the nation's favourite ROSCO...
Porterbrook Leasing has signed a contract with LNWR to repaint 72 Class 150/2 vehicles operated by Arriva Trains Wales, valued at £1MWith franchising stalled this is indeed good news for the UK's increasingly beleaguered rolling stock supply chain!
But what's this?
The 150/2s are operated by Arriva Trains Wales - part of Arriva - owned by Deutsche Bahn.
They will be repainted by LNWR - owned by Arriva - part of Deutsche Bahn.
And the job is being funded by Porterbrook - part-owned by Deutsche Bank.
Deutschland über alles indeed!
