A double helping of news from the region’s train operators: First Keolis have had their Transpennine Express franchise extended sometime between April 2014 and March 2015, up to an additional 3 years and two months; and meanwhile Northern Rail are to operate 22 extra carriages from December. Extension of the Transpennine Express franchise means that it could be re-let at the same time as Northern Rail, in a different form. The additional carriages for Northern will be in the shape of seven Pacers and four Sprinters.
