More train changes on the way?
There are strong rumours that the 'Adelante' trains recently introduced on the Cotswold Line are to be reassigned to Scotland. This is expected to take place later this year, either in June or December.
There is as yet no word on what would replace them if this were to be the case, but the train operator FirstGroup has been acquiring extra High Speed Trains over the past two years.
