East Coast Main Line Services
Whilst RAGES main aim is the re-instatement of the local service between Edinburgh and Berwick, we maintain a watchful eye on the East Coast main line services run by CrossCountry and Virgin Trains East Coast and take any action as appears necessary.
Virgin Trains East Coast took over the east coast main line franchise on 1 March 2015. More details are in The Rages Rag issue 64.
Meet the Manager
Prior to the new franchisee takeover, in February 2015, Barrie Forrest met Jonny Holdcroft, Stakeholder Communications Manager, at Berwick.
Tom Thorburn met the Manager at Dunbar on the same day.
The points raised can be seen in The Rages Rag issue 64.
