Event Details

The North East Area Council welcomes Karen Duffy and Iain Ferguson, from Virgin Trains East Coast (VTEC), to come and talk to members about how Virgin Trains plans to deliver the East Coast franchise.

Karen and Iain will cover two high priority topics in the delivery of any rail franchise, Performance and Safety.  They will provide the VTEC vision on these critical areas and how this fits into meeting the daily demands of operating on one of the country’s premier routes.

With a new fleet of intercity trains and a brand new signalling system on the horizon, performance and safety will be key to the successful delivery of a reliable service to passengers on the East Coast Main Line for years to come.

This event will be of particular interest to those who wish to gain an insight into how an intercity franchise operates.

Please note that you should aim for a prompt arrival, as the reception area at the Academy will not be manned after 17:30hrs.

To reserve a place email your details including membership grade and area to: northeast@railwayoperators.co.uk
