Rolling Stock

Question for Department for Transport

The Department is currently working with the Cross Country operator to put in place additional capacity enhancements during 2021, and it is expected this will be achieved through longer trains, rather than extra services.

In addition, further rolling stock options are being considered for the next Franchise.
