Rail CPG MSP comments on ScotRail franchise decision
John Mason MSP
Wednesday, 08 October 2014

John - Baillieston Rail StationSNP MSP and Co-Convener of Holyrood’s Rail Cross Party Group, John Mason, has commented on today’s news that Dutch rail operator Abellio has been awarded the ScotRail franchise in place of First.  Under the terms of the contract there is the potential for a break in the contract after five years to allow for any major political developments.

Commenting from Parliament, Glasgow Shettleston MSP, John Mason said: “As someone who uses the trains on a regular basis, I feel that First ScotRail did a pretty good job and it is a bit surprising that they have lost the franchise, although the same thing happened some years ago when National Express did a reasonable job and lost out to First, so we will see what the future holds in terms of Abellio.  Given that it is the same rails, stations, trains, and staff, very little actually changes with a new franchise.
