Grand Central submits bids for extra paths
Grand Central submitted its application to the Office of Rail and Road on May 15 to operate additional services on the East Coast Main Line.
The open access operator wants to run one additional Sunderland-King’s Cross train, an additional train between Bradford Interchange and London in the late afternoon, an early morning train from Wakefield Kirkgate to London that will arrive in the capital before 0730, and a ten-coach late-evening train departing London before 2200 that will split at Doncaster (with one part returning to Wakefield and the other continuing to York).
Grand Central also hopes to stop its early morning and late evening West Yorkshire route trains at Peterborough, as well as its two North East trains. Grand Central submits bids for extra paths
