Re: Another High Street Rebrand

One of the things the DFT are trying to do is have a constant brand across franchise owners.. sort of like TfL and Overground. We will find out probably in about 10 years time if that works, when the 'generic name' franchises (GWR, Northern, Transpennine Express) start to expire again, although I b...
