We are closely monitoring industry progress on this issue and would deal with any failure to deliver contractual obligations according the normal processes under the terms of that Franchise Agreement. Note that Transport for Wales are responsible for the management of their operator, Transport for Wales Rail Services. Wherever Pacers are phased out, they will make way for new or fully-refurbished trains that will transform the journey experience for passengers.
