First Great Western retain Devon rail franchise
8:00pm Friday 11th October 2013 in Devon
FIRST Great Western trains will continue running through Devon and Somerset for another two years, it has been announced.
The Department for Transport said the company, owned by FirstGroup, would run trains until September 2015.
Passengers have been told they can expect improvements, including a sleeper service to Devon and Cornwall, and more on-board Wi-Fi.
First Group had three competitors for the Great Western Lines, including Stagecoach, Arriva and National Express, but was left as the only commercial candidate being considered.
