    Default Virgin Trains to lose contract.

    Richard Branson has said he is 'devastated' that Virgin Trains' reign over the West Coast Main Line train route is coming to an end after 22 years.

    The Department for Transport has awarded Aberdeen-based First Group and Trenitalia UK, an arm of Italy's main train operator, the contract to run the London-to-Glasgow rail line from 8 December.

    After the contract starts, more than 60 per cent of train journeys made on British railway lines will be made using services partly owned by foreign companies, analysis has revealed.

    Having travelled on Virgin trains, I can't say I've ever been overly impressed. Too many people crammed in without seats is not (IMO) a good businerss model
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.
