A Welcome For First Great Western’s Franchise Extension

First Great Western’s franchise extension with all its new trains has been welcomed in the heart of Wiltshire according to this report in the Wiltshire Times, which is entitled TransWilts rail campaigners welcome First Great Western franchise extension.

The TransWilts is a community rail line, that I rode last year in a very clean Class 153 single-carriage train. This is a key paragraph in the Wiltshire Times report.

Following the franchise extension announcement, First Great Western confirmed that the TransWilts service will continue to run beyond the end of the three-year trial in 2016, with single carriage trains expected to be doubled to two carriages from May 2017.

In a few years time, it looks like this vital rail link will be getting near to a adequate service acoss Wiltshire.
