A look ahead to Grand Union

Railways to our Core

At Grand Union we are passionate about Britain’s railways. We are committed to the traditional values of providing a high-quality customer service and comfortable journey experiences at a fair price.

Grand Union has been founded with the primary aim of providing a new customer-focused standard of train service, which challenges and changes the current passenger experience. By providing greater passenger choice through competition with existing franchise holders, new journey opportunities that in turn deliver wider economic benefits, and value for money for rail users and taxpayers, we are confident we can achieve this.

As an independent company, Grand Union has submitted its application for a passenger track access agreement requesting to operate a service on the Cardiff to London route. In August 2019, Grand Union resubmitted its application, proposing an extended service from Cardiff Central to Llanelli.

Grand Union has also advised the Office of Rail and Road (ORR) of its intention to operate a service between Stirling and London via the West Coast Main Line.

Llanelli to London

The Initial Route

The service is planned to start in 2021 with calling points of Cardiff Central, Newport, Severn Tunnel Junction and Bristol Parkway, then express to London Paddington. It will also stop at Cardiff Parkway when it opens.

Grand Union’s trains will cut the current average journey time between Cardiff and London by 20 minutes, with a target journey time of 1 hour 45 mins. Services will be operated by 125mph electric trains released from the flagship routes on the East Coast Main Line.

© Grand Union

The Expanded Route

It is proposed to increase the frequency of this route to an hourly service in 2023, when the route would also expand from Cardiff Central to operate fast to Swansea and Llanelli, with no intermediate calls, with a target journey time to Swansea of 2 hours 30 mins to/from London Paddington. These services would be operated by a new fleet of Hitachi Class 802 bi-mode trains.

© Grand Union

Stirling to London

The Route

This route is planned to start in May 2021 and will operate four times per day. Starting at Stirling it will call at Larbert, Greenfaulds (for Cumbernauld), Whifflet (for Coatbridge and Airdrie), Motherwell and Lockerbie in Scotland and in England at Carlisle, Preston, Crewe, Nuneaton and Milton Keynes, before terminating at London Euston.

The line will avoid the congested Edinburgh and Glasgow stations, giving passengers a faster service without any changes required. Electric trains will be used along the route, with a potential travelling speed of up to 125mph.

Innovation between Greater Anglia and local construction company helps cut carbon emissions

An innovation between Greater Anglia and a local construction firm has helped to cut carbon emissions during a project to build a new platform at a north Norfolk railway station.

Sheringham station platform © Greater Anglia

Coping stones – large slabs of concrete which are laid to create a railway station platform – typically weigh 312kg each.

But thanks to a new design, created between Greater Anglia and Norfolk-based contractors RG Carter, new coping stones used to build Sheringham station’s new platform weighed almost half.

This meant smaller machinery was needed to move the stones and it was quicker and safer to move and install the stones.

The stones are built with a waffle-like profile underneath, creating a more hollowed effect. Despite the reduced weight, the stones have the same strength and have met and exceeded all of the stringent testing required by Network Rail to ensure compliance with the required safety standards as the regular coping stone.

They were produced locally in Sheringham, rather than from another site hundreds of miles away, meaning further emissions were saved when transporting them to the site.

It’s the first time these coping stones have been laid in this country.

The new 80 metre platform is wider and twice the length of the previous, supposedly temporary platform, which was installed in 1967.

Simone Bailey, Greater Anglia’s Asset Management Director, said: “We are always looking for new innovations on the railway, and this project was a great collaboration between the railway and a local business.

“The new platform at Sheringham was needed to accommodate our new trains. We are very pleased with the finished result and even more delighted that we were able to reduce carbon emissions and lessen our environmental impact while carrying out this project.

“We’re very pleased to have delivered this major station improvement for Sheringham to benefit rail passengers and the town.”

More than £1 million was invested in the project, which has seen improved lighting and a new, bigger and better customer shelter installed.

The station can fully accommodate the new trains which started to enter service last year. The new bi-mode trains are all 3 or 4 carriages long, meaning that Greater Anglia can provide more capacity for special events such as the Cromer Fireworks and Worstead Festival, and the busiest days during the holiday season.

Passengers with luggage, buggies and those using wheelchairs all benefit from the improved facilities, complimenting the new trains which are also much more accessible, including a special automatic retractable step, which comes in to use at stations and enables level access at most stations, including Sheringham.

Annual passenger numbers on the line have grown from 200,000 a year to over 700,000 in 2018/19 – an increase of more than 300% – after a series of service improvements, including more frequent train services and station enhancements, combined with promotion from train operators and the Bittern Line Community Rail Partnership.

Heroes of WW2 to be honoured in train namings

GWR to commemorate 75 years since Victory in Europe 

Great Western Railway (GWR) will mark 75 years since the end of World War 2 and peace was declared in Europe by naming six trains after remarkable individuals involved in the conflict.

Those being honoured represent the armed forces, the intelligence services and the world of politics, and remember the sacrifice, bravery and tenacity that helped defeat Nazism. 

Among others, those to have an Intercity Express Train named after them include: 

  • Harry Billinge MBE from St Austell in Cornwall, a veteran of D-Day
  • Wing Commander Ken Rees from Wales, Wellington Bomber pilot who was imprisoned in Stalag Luft III
  • Alan Turing from London, who led Hut 8 at the Government Code and Cypher School at Bletchley Park, responsible for breaking of German ciphers

GWR Head of Communications Dan Panes said:

“Naming trains and locomotives is a long tradition of the railway and one which GWR continues, supporting and promoting the people and communities we serve. 

“I am really pleased we are able to honour some of the heroes of the war effort, continuing to help tell their incredible stories, and especially during this year where we remember all those who gave so much.”

The six trains will be named during March and April in the run-up to VE Day at the beginning of May.

The first of those to be honoured is Odette Hallowes, a French citizen who lived in London and Devon/Somerset. Odette became a Special Operations Executive and the most highly decorated spy of the war. 

A special ceremony will take place at Paddington station and will be attended by members of Odette’s family on Friday 6 March

Odette Hallowes ©GWR

Odette’s granddaughter, Sophie Parker said:

“It means so much to our family that Odette is being recognised and remembered in this most moving way. Odette’s story is one of courage, dignity and hope; all of which were so important to her during her wartime service, and in overcoming the torture she suffered.

“I know Odette would be extremely humbled by this honour, and would want it seen as a tribute to all those brave women of the Special Operations Executive, especially those who never returned home.”

Further details of each of the ceremonies will be published in the coming weeks.
