What will our rail network look like in 2018?

A Greater West is coming, as we deliver the largest train fleet upgrade in a generation. The changes are part of our new franchise, which will see us running your railway until at least 2019.
As part of the improvements, we will:
  • create 9,000 extra seats each day by the end of the deal
  • provide you with faster journeys and more reliable services
  • cut the age of our train fleet by more than half
We’ve also responded to customer demand by introducing free Wi-Fi on board, and creating more car parking spaces.
