Rail union says Welsh should run their own train services
A rail union says it is time for the Welsh Government to take control of services - creating 'Welsh Rail' to run trains.
They spoke out after four bidders were selected to progress to the next stage in the procurement process to operate rail services in Wales and the Borders from October 2018 as well take forward key aspects of the North Wales Metro vision.
Despite the Welsh Government’s ambition to deliver a new not for profit rail model the RMT union says that the corporations will take money out of the country.
