Annual General Meeting 21st June 2012

Written on 23rdJuly 2012 by Kate Whittle

A rapt audience heard from Ian Yeowart, CEO of Alliance Rail Holdings talk about his progress from 1997 when he set up Grand Central. It took seven years to get to market on the Sunderland to London route via Northallerton and York, then another three years on the Bradford to London route via Brighouse, Wakefield & Pontefract. This was after Grand Central under Ian’s leadership had successfully secured rights to operate ‘open access’ services on the East Coast Main Line. See our latest newsletter for more information.
