West Coast Railway Line: Rolling Stock

Volume 468: debated on Monday 26 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when she expects the new Virgin Pendolino carriages to be in use on the West Coast main line. (166729)

Negotiations continue with Network Rail, Virgin Trains and Alstom to determine the optimal way of providing further increased capacity on the west coast main line. I hope to be able to make a further announcement during the early part of the new year.
