editor’s comment

CONTROVERSIAL as it is, the plans to build HS2 are now subject to a review relating to its benefits and costs. As a key infrastructure project, HS2 has certainly polarised public opinion, but as a project it is still surrounded by outright lies, coupled with misinformation, which has been picked up and presented as ‘fact’ by the mainstream media. It’s a situation which has not been helped by the relatively silent HS2 PR teams, although they are improving with their messages. The latest thinking to be aired from the so-called ‘railway experts’ is the re-use of the abandoned Great Central (GC) main line to create the additional capacity, instead of building HS2. Most readers will be aware that in the 50 years since the last section of the line was closed, large chunks…

it’s crunch time for hs2 as government review considers costs and scope

NEW Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has thrown the future of High Speed 2 (HS2) into doubt with a new review that will challenge the £56billion project’s scope, design and affordability. Doug Oakervee, a retired engineer, former HS2 Ltd chairman ,and ally of Prime Minister Boris Johnson, will lead the review, assisted by Lord Tony Berkeley, former chairman of the Rail Freight Group and vocal critic of the project. The quick-fire review is expected to last just a few weeks, with a final report due in the autumn. Based on the report’s conclusions, the Government will then make a decision on whether and how to proceed before the end of the year. Terms of reference for the review include the ability of HS2 Ltd to deliver the project effectively, the project’s benefits to towns…

network rail reveals plans for west yorkshire trans-pennine upgrade

ELECTRIFICATION and quadrupling of the line between Huddersfield and Dewsbury are part of Network Rail’s planned upgrade for the trans-Pennine route in West Yorkshire. The infrastructure owner is now consulting local communities and businesses about its proposals, which will see eight miles of the Manchester to Leeds via Standedge Tunnel route quadrupled between Huddersfield and Westtown in Dewsbury. NR is also proposing a grade-separated junction at Ravensthorpe, near Mirfield, where the Leeds and Wakefield lines diverge. Reinstated tracks Major rebuilds of Huddersfield, Deighton, Mirfield and Ravensthorpe stations will also be necessary to accommodate the reinstated tracks. This section of the route had four tracks until the 1960s when it was rationalised by BR. Heaton Lodge Junction – where the Standedge and Calder Valley lines diverge – was further rebuilt in the 1980s to raise…

first and trenitalia to run west coast main line

OPERATION of the West Coast Partnership (WCP) will be in the hands of First Group and Trenitalia from December 8, under what will be the first of a new franchise partnership model. With a 70/30 partnership in favour of First, the pair will end Virgin Trains’domination of the flagship route, which has remained unbroken for more than 22 years. The operation covers West Coast Main Line services from London Euston to Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Glasgow. Virgin’s biding partner Stagecoach was banned from all franchise competitions earlier this year by the Department for Transport because of non-compliant bids in relation to pension risk, which left Virgin out on a limb. It has effectively forced two long-standing franchisees out of the market, although Virgin has put in an audacious open access bid to run services…

transpennine ‘nova 3’ enters passenger service after extensive testing

A TRANSPENNINE Express ‘Nova 3’ train finally entered passenger service on August 24 after extensive testing and a start to driver and crew training. Each ‘Nova 3’ set comprises of five CAF Mk5a coaches powered by Class 68 locomotives, and have been working regular test runs across the Pennines in the lead up to the launch, with positive feedback being received from drivers. The first service was the 05.55 Manchester Victoria-Liverpool Lime Street, which was worked by ‘Nova 3’ set TP09 powered by 68027 Splendid, after which the set worked the 06.56 to Scarborough. Later in the day, the 17.44 from Scarborough was terminated at Manchester Victoria, the loco reported to be low on fuel. Reasons for this are being investigated by TPE and its maintainer, Alstom. As The RM closed for press…
