Funny, I was just wondering that, I presume they would have some sort of special charter side as their predecessors.

They will work much as they do now, I imagine. Submit a bid for the route and times, it gets planned by GBR planners and handed back for them to finalise crew and send out tickets, etc. The operators will still own their own stock and will effectively function the same way FOCs do.

It says that open access operators will be allowed to operate under regulator. The charter TOCs are basically that.

The plans for GBR feature Sir Peter Hendy very heavily don't they? He's a big friend to heritage services on the mainline so I'd imagine as long as he has a say, they'll continue to operate.

Charters were around long before Mr Hendy, they'll stay while he's here and they will still be there once he's gone. He is a friend of the heritage sector, but there's a lot more to charters running than getting the boss of NR on the phone.
