Penzance - London night trains make no sense whatsoever. They need a high-speed link to Cornwall.

-------------

Separate question: are Hull Trains planning to expand their service? Are there other open-access domestic operators planning new services in the near future?

PZ - London is actually very popular eith tourists, and the normal train takes 6 hours anyway, having a sleeper isn't such alarge loss of time.

There's GNWR starting up, and GNER restarting, I believe.

Hull already recieves 8tpd to and from London (7 FHT, 1 ICEC) and with the new ICEC franchise I think we'd have seen more about hull in the ITT if more services were felt necessary.

That's only partly correct, alliance rail are proposing open access stuff on the WCML and ECML. Their brand names are GNWR and GNER (not the same GNER which ran ICEC). Services on the WCML received to ok from network rail but that's not really as important as receiving permission from the ORR who could easily block the services due to revenue abstraction from ICWC.

While currently at a “visionary” early stage, the scheme, which would cost hundreds of millions of pounds, would see the current railway station transformed with a significant increase in the size of its concourse – its existing art deco designed facade maintained – and potentially more than 340,000 sq ft of new office and retail space built within its enlarged footprint and on land on its south side.



If realised it would also have a hugely positive economic impact on the city and its efforts in attracting more jobs and investment – working alongside the Capital Square scheme in front of the train station, which will be location for BBC Wales new 135,000 sq ft new headquarters, and the wider Central Cardiff Enterprise Zone.

The investment is needed to accommodate growing passenger levels at the station– which last experienced an increase of 100,000 to just over 13 million. Commuter numbers into Cardiff are forecast to increase again by 67% by 2023.

The plans are being driven by route managing director of Network Rail Wales, Mark Langman and his team. Network Rail Wales is looking to build a team Wales approach to realising the project – which already has the backing of the Welsh Government and Cardiff Council. Confirmation of approval from the DfT would come in the High Level Output Specification statement in 2017, which will outline which projects will be taken forward for funding in CP6.

The ambitious project could include:

* The front of the station begin expanded outwards with a strikingly designed wave effect roof – similar to the that on the Senedd building – and a glass frontage allowing for the existing 1920s existing facade to be clearly visible and maintained.
* The station’s expanded concourse providing some 40,000 sq ft of new retail space with a mezzanine floor.
* A 30-metre wide public thoroughfare at the heart of the station with retail space along its length to the south side and passenger access to the stations’ eight platforms.
* On the south side, up to 300,000 sq ft of new mixed-use commercial development with the potential for a significant amount of grade A office space.
* Potentially a separate building on the south side to house stakeholders in the rail industry in Wales, including Network Rail and which ever company operates the next Wales and borders franchise from 2018.
* A new multi-storey car park with up to 900 spaces on the south side close to SA Brain & Co brewery site.

Subject to approval work, the project could start in 2020. However, it is possible that construction of the multi-storey car and commercial developments on the three acres of land on the south side owned by Network could start before then.

<snip>

With the existing bus depot in front of the station having to make way for the BBC Wales HQ, Cardiff Council has begun a public consultation exercise on where to locate a replacement bus station – located in a transport hub also serving taxis coach operators, cyclist and potentially an interchange for the proposed South-East Metro transport network and its route to Cardiff Bay.

Cardiff council has identified two sites for the transport hub: land at the current site of Marland House and the NCP car park north of the train station and Network Rail’s existing surface car park just to the south of the train station.
Taken from Wales Online, and trimmed down quite a bit.

No, there isn't the necessary population density (= number of potential passengers) in the far South West of England to justify a new High Speed Line. Network Rail and DfT are struggling to make a case even for electrification of the route, and recent reports suggested the cost of the diversion inland to avoid Dawlish was also prohibitive. If somebody decides to build another high speed line in the UK, my suggestion would be Cardiff and Bristol to Birmingham.

Queen opens rebuilt Reading station
17 Jul 2014







UK: The rebuilt station at Reading on Network Rail’s Great Western Main Line was officially inaugurated by Queen Elizabeth II on July 17, marking the completion of a four-year project.

The station reconstruction forms a key element in the £897m Reading Station Area Redevelopment programme, which is now expected to be completed a year ahead of schedule in the spring of 2015. This includes remodelling and grade-separating junctions west of the station to segregate east-west and north-south flows plus the construction of a new rolling stock depot. The GWML is also being electrified and resignalled with ETCS Level 2 under related projects which are due for completion over the next five years, adding to the complexity of the work programme.

There will be capacity for up to four more trains per hour, including Crossrail services which are due to begin running to Reading in 2019. With patronage forecast to reach 30 million passengers a year by 2030, the rebuilding has doubled the station’s capacity, with the construction of five new platforms, linked by lifts and escalators to a huge concourse above the tracks, with entrances both north and south of the main line.

‘Reading is now a state-of-the-art station, future-proofed to cope with more than double its current number of passengers’, said Robbie Burns, NR’s Regional Director, Infrastructure Projects, Western & Wales, adding that the remodelling would address ‘one of the worst bottlenecks on the British railway network’.

First Great Western Managing Director Mark Hopwood said ‘this is a fantastic day, not just because our customers have a brand new station that is fit for the 21st century, but also because it marks the completion of the first major project in a series of billion-pound investments that will be made in the Great Western network over the coming years.’

Project management for the station rebuilding has been provided by Bechtel, which was appointed in 2009 to assist Network Rail with the Crossrail surface works programme

Euston station development to provide more space and choice for passengers
Friday 18 Jul 2014





Passengers at Euston can look forward to a bigger, better station with more shops and a wider choice of food and drink as Network Rail begins a £12.5m development of the station this month.

More than 70m people use Euston station every year and passenger numbers are growing faster than any other London terminus. Network Rail’s scheme will create more space both inside and outside the station while giving passengers, local residents and people working in the area a better selection of shops as well as places to eat and drink.

Phase one of the scheme will see the piazza outside the station cleared of kiosks and replaced with ‘grab and go’ food units incorporated into the front of the station, providing more space and a more pleasant atmosphere. The new units will open from summer 2015.

Inside the station, an 8,000 sq ft balcony will be created, featuring a new bar, a selection of casual dining outlets and a comfy seating area overlooking the main concourse. The balcony will be fully accessible via escalators, stairs and a lift and is expected to open to the public in late 2015.

Phase two of the scheme will see the current station food court converted into an improved and expanded retail area, offering a range of quality brands. This should be complete by the end of 2015.

Hamish Kiernan, commercial retail director at Network Rail, said: “More than a million people use Euston station every week and this number is only set to grow further. Our plan for Euston will provide more space and a better atmosphere for passengers as well as an attractive mix of food, drink and shopping options for people travelling to or through the station.

“Our award-winning developments at King’s Cross and Waterloo showcase what can be achieved at our major stations and now as we move our focus to Euston, we are confident we can create a bigger, brighter station for everyone.”

Network Rail and its contractors have planned the work in order to minimise any disruption to station users during construction. The station will remain open throughout and train services will not be affected.

Another nice little earner for Network Rail...

Britain's new railway revolution - the shop arriving at platform 2 is for you | UK news | The Guardian
Quote:
...In only two years Network Rail, which runs 19 of the UK's biggest stations, has increased its retail space by more than 20% to 600,000sq ft. By 2019 it plans to have 850,000sq ft – not counting the 450,000sq ft Grand Central shopping centre and John Lewis department store being tacked on to Birmingham's New Street station and due to open next year.

As well as the complete reconstruction in Birmingham, there are big projects to redevelop Edinburgh Waverley, London Bridge – where retail space will increase sevenfold to a space the size of Wembley Stadium – and Euston, which will get several new shops and a balcony area filled with restaurants by next year.

Network Rail collected £700m in retail income over the five years from 2009 to 2014, but as a result of all these developments that is forecast to rise to £1.2bn in the next five years.

...Rental values at the big London hubs are on a par with Oxford Street. The vast Boots store at Liverpool Street is said to be the group's second busiest next to Oxford Street, while some retailers at London's busiest stations can take as much as £3,000 a square foot in sales.

...At Euston, a fifth of the people using the station's facilities are not travelling by train at all...

Hitachi unveils modular EMU designs
22 Jul 2014







UK: Hitachi Rail Europe unveiled full-size mock-ups of its AT100 and AT200 EMU designs in London on July 21.

Aimed primarily at the UK market, the two designs are intended to augment the existing AT300 (Class 395/Class 800) design to create a family of trains. These can be configured using standard components to cover a wide range of applications. The AT100 is a high-density inner-suburban trainset with 20 m long cars for use on intensive metro-type services, while the AT200 is targeted at a wider range of commuter, suburban and inter-regional applications with operating speeds of between 140 km/h and 200 km/h. Nominal vehicle length would be 23 m.

Hitachi has already been shortlisted by Transport for London alongside Bombardier, CAF and Siemens to supply 39 four-car ‘metro-style’ electric multiple-units for London Overground services. The company expects to offer the AT200 when ScotRail calls tenders for EMUs to operate between Edinburgh and Glasgow upon completion of the EGIP upgrading and electrification programme.

Both the AT100 and AT200 trainsets meet the UK’s C1 loading gauge, with Hitachi suggesting that its use of friction-stir welded aluminium bodyshells ensures ‘go anywhere’ gauge clearance while maximising space in the passenger saloon.

Chief Operating Officer Andy Barr suggested that the engineering design ‘was still being finalised’, but the trains would be equipped for dual-voltage operation at 25 kV 50 Hz and 750 V DC. In the medium term, he suggested that lithium-ion battery hybrid variants would be offered for use over sections of non-electrified line of up to 30 km, adding that this technology had progressed ‘substantially’ since Hitachi undertook its Hayabusa trials with an IC125 trainset in 2007.

Wi-fi and mobile data networks would be fitted as standard to the trains to enhance the provision of passenger information in the saloon. Possible enhancements include the use of Hitachi cloud commuting storage to handle real-time seat reservation data; passengers could be encouraged to scan a QR code to verify that they are occupying the seat they have booked.

Alistair Dormer, Global CEO of Hitachi Rail Systems, confirmed that the company intends to build a demonstrator EMU of at least three vehicles next year, as a speculative venture at its own expense. Series production would take place at Hitachi’s Newton Aycliffe plant which is now under construction for opening next year.

Network Rail plans exciting new vision for Cardiff Central
Thursday 17 Jul 2014







Network Rail is planning the biggest transformation of Cardiff Central station since it was first built in the 1850s.

The company is exploring options to deliver a major redevelopment of the station during its next five-year funding period, which starts in 2019. The plans could see an extension to the Grade II listed building to create a bigger, better and brighter station.

A major upgrade to the signalling technology in the Cardiff area is already underway and work has also started to electrify the line from Swansea to London. These programmes will help future-proof the railway by enabling faster, more frequent trains across the South Wales network.

But with passenger numbers forecast to grow significantly over the next decade and beyond, the station also needs to respond to the rising demand.

The remit for the initial design work has been to integrate the historic elements of the station into a new, modern building that better reflects passenger needs.

The plans will provide a bright, spacious concourse with improved connectivity to platforms as well as enhanced retail opportunities and additional places to eat and drink. The aspiration is for the station to offer both an improved experience for passengers and for it to be a destination in its own right serving the local community emerging around it.

Along with the changes to the passenger experience, the project will see a major redevelopment of the entire station site. The proposals envisage a new multi-deck car park, commercial developments on the existing south side and Saunders Road car parks and an enhanced transport interchange and public realm.

Mark Langman, route managing director for Network Rail in Wales, said: “The station area is a prime location for commercial development, as the BBC Wales headquarter announcement shows, and we are really excited by the site and the opportunities it will unlock to redevelop the station.

“This is a unique opportunity to create a new station environment that is a fitting entrance to the capital city of Wales. We're pleased to be working with the Welsh Government, Cardiff Council and industry partners, including Arriva Trains Wales, to enhance the city and the quality of transport in the region.

“Our plans will help deliver a vastly improved experience for the tens of thousands of passengers that use the station every day. It will be the focal point of the Central Cardiff Enterprise Zone and will seamlessly blend our significant investment programme, including the re-signalling scheme and electrification, with other improvements to the local urban environment."

Ian Bullock, managing director for Arriva Trains Wales, said "We have seen a significant increase in passenger numbers using trains into Cardiff Central station and this is forecast to grow significantly in the future.

“We are excited by the plans being developed and look forward to working with all parties to ensure that the needs of passengers and staff are met. A particular aspect we look forward to developing with partners is for those using the station following special events in the city.

“The plans have the potential to make Cardiff Central a landmark station not only for Cardiff but the railway nationally.”
This one seems unusual - old station building covered by new one

Rail to play key role in Britain’s One North project
Tuesday, August 05, 2014



PROPOSALS to invest £10-15bn to enhance transport links in northern England have been announced today by the cities of Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield, Leeds and Newcastle

The objective of the One North project is to increase capacity and cut journey times between these cities enabling them to function more cohesively and boost economic development.

The report says that while road is the dominant mode of transport in northern England, the already-congested network cannot meet forecast growth, and while rail is the mode that is growing most strongly, the network suffers from lack of investment. Average speeds on rail links between the cities, excluding Newcastle, range from 64km/h to 92km/h and the number of paths per hour range from one to five, meaning rail journey times are uncompetitive and train frequencies are low.

The report notes that while current plans for electrification and the Northern Hub project centred on Manchester will go some way towards improving the quality of infrastructure, they will not deliver the additional capacity needed. Nevertheless, One North calls for more electrification and introduction of more trains by 2024.

One North proposes accelerating construction of the Sheffield - Leeds section of HS2 which would form part of a new 200km/h line from a triangular junction between these two cities running west to Manchester, Manchester Airport and Liverpool. The £5bn line would require a new tunnel beneath the Pennines. With completion anticipated in 2030, the new line would increase rail capacity between these cities by up to 150% and cut journey times in half. A new 225km/h line is also proposed by 2026 between Darlington and Newcastle to parallel the existing double-track East Coast Main Line.

The new trans-Pennine line would be built to a continental European loading gauge to accommodate double-deck trains and provide sufficient clearance for high-cube container and piggyback freight trains. There would also be investment to improve railfreight terminals and links to major ports such as Liverpool. The objective is to increase freight train movements by up to 65%.

Rail North also calls for the construction of new cross-city lines in Liverpool, Manchester, Bradford, Leeds and Newcastle by 2026

Tracklaying begins on Scotland's Borders Railway
Thursday, August 14, 2014





SCOTLAND's Borders Railway project has celebrated a milestone with the laying of the first sections of track on the 48km line from Newcraighall, south of Edinburgh, to Tweedbank.

The first section to be completed is a stretch of ballastless slab track on the northbound line in the 200m Bowshank Tunnel near Galashiels at the southern end of the route. Infrastructure manager Network Rail expects to complete the southbound track in the tunnel over the next few weeks and conventional tracklaying will begin elsewhere on the line in the next few months.

The £294m non-electrified line is due to open in mid-2015, restoring rail services to an area isloated from the network since the closure of the Edinburgh – Carlisle Waverley Route in 1969
