Train passengers in the North of England have been promised “a world-class rail network” as the Government announced the shortlist of companies that will run future services in the region.

Three operators have been shortlisted for the Northern rail franchise and three for the TransPennine Express (TPE) franchise, with the winners due to be announced on October 2015.

The Campaign for Better Transport and the RMT transport union have expressed concern that rail services in northern England could be cut.
