Afternoon folks Found myself at Rugby between trains early this morning, and got chatting with one of the Virgin dispatchers. We were discussing the possibility of Virgin taking over the LM franchise when it finishes next year. Apparently, they aren't even going to submit a bid. I'm guessing those that are preferred bidders may well have already been told, but how might I go about finding out who they might be?? One of my colleagues did suggest First could be in the running, but surely not??
