Our history and philosophy
Grand Central reaches the parts of the country other services don’t – directly linking large cities in Yorkshire and the North East with London, often for the first time in years.
Grand Central’s first route was launched in December 2007 and linked London Kings Cross with York, Thirsk, Northallerton, Eaglescliffe, Hartlepool and Sunderland. In May 2010, a new service calling at Bradford, Halifax, Brighouse, Wakefield, Pontefract and Doncaster linked West Yorkshire with London Kings Cross. On 11 December 2011, Grand Central began calling at Mirfield on the West Riding route.
We work hard to recruit and train staff for our trains. Our committed and passionate people are our most valuable asset, and we always get involved with our local communities and charitable events. Grand Central aims to provide the best possible customer service, recreating the best of the railway tradition of quality and attention to detail.
