Rolling Stock

Volume 503: debated on Wednesday 13 January 2010

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport how much has been spent on additional rolling stock for the Calder Valley line between Halifax and Leeds since 2005. (310460)

Generally, rolling stock is not procured for particular routes unless there are special reasons, usually technical or operational, for doing so, and therefore it is not possible to identify additional trains provided specifically for services between Halifax and Leeds. However in 2006 Yorkshire Forward part funded the additional cost of 12 diesel multiple unit vehicles for use on services on routes in West Yorkshire, including those between Leeds and Halifax.
