Go-op Plans New Services From Summer 2020

The title of this article is the same as that of this article on Modern Railways.

This is the first sentence.

Community-owned rail operator Go-op Co-operative Ltd is seeking views on proposed new open access rail services in Somerset and Wiltshire. Services, which it hopes could start in summer 2020, would be operated by two refurbished Class 769 units working ‘a complex series of trips between Oxfordshire and Somerset’

I wrote about this before in An Ambitious Proposal For A New Train Service?

In the intervening three years, their plans have developed with more detail and a change to Class 769 trains.

I suggested the latter trains in my original post about Go-op, would be an idea.

Given the proposed route structure, they would be able to run at 100 mph on the electrified sections.
