In May 2015, Transport for London awarded the TfL Rail contract to MTR Corporation, which runs Hong Kong’s Mass Transit Railway. TfL Rail is a new contract, which has taken control of the existing “metro” train services between London Liverpool Street and Shenfield. On the completion of the London Crossrail project, TfL Rail will take over control of existing services to Heathrow as well as operating the new Elizabeth Line services. The contract is intended to last for eight years. MTR Corporation also operates the South Western Railway franchise in a joint venture with FirstGroup.
• Do you use the TfL Rail service regularly?
• Do you believe it should be returned to public hands as part of a re-unified national rail network run for people not profit?
• Then, why not start a campaign building up to the franchise end?
