Building on the Strategic Vision for Rail, the Department is actively considering the future of the TSGN franchise. It is doing this working closely with the Williams Rail Review, which, as part of its work, is examining the most appropriate organisational and commercial models for the future railway. This work is at an early stage and nothing is off the table.
