Exciting new catering offer from DOR

This from Puffing Billy...

Good news for those interested in railway catering.

There was much disappointment last month when East Coast cancelled, at short notice, the launch of its new catering offer.

Happily it would appear that the state owned TOC has found a new venue to unveil it's exciting plans for the future - no less a location than the opulent Stafford Hotel in the exclusive St James area of London.

As well as offering trade hacks the chance to meet with Rail Barbie and Karen Boswell over a 'special meal', tonight's invitees have also been promised a tour of the hotel's unrivalled wine cellar and, as an added bonus, a 'special guest' appearance by a senior figure from Network Rail!

In these austere times it is comforting to know that the public sector can still put on a good show.

Perhaps Sir Philip Green should call by to see such efficiency in action?

UPDATE: This from one of Eye's spies at last night's dinner...

It would appear that Ms Holt is one of Eye's growing band of devotees.

She began last night's festivities by introducing herself as 'Rail Barbie'...

Good effort.
