NR restructuring shocker!

Shocking news from Network Rail!

M&C will become East Midlands route with Martin Frobisher, currently route infrastructure maintenance director M&C, taking up the role of route director, East Midlands . A replacement for Martin as the route infrastructure maintenance director will be appointed shortly.

Dear God - putting someone who understands maintenance in charge of a Route. Madness!

It'll never catch on.

UPDATE: This from NR's Internet Rapid Rebuttal Unit...

Martin will not be our first route director with a background in maintenance.

Our route director for LNE, Richard Lungmuss used to be Scottish maintenance director.

Is there no end to this lunacy! Bring back the accountants says Eye. They know how to run a railway!
