Landmark coming together sees train companies, Network Rail and suppliers launch ‘In Partnership for Britain’s Prosperity’, a single, long-term plan for a changing and improving railway.

Responding to the Government’s announcement, Paul Plummer, Chief Executive of the Rail Delivery Group, which brings together train companies and Network Rail to improve the railway, said:
