ORR backs new talking shop.

Exciting news from the Office of Rail Regulation!

The Office of Rail Regulation (ORR) has today announced that it supports the formalisation of the Rail Delivery Group (RDG). This will strengthen the group’s ability to lead change benefitting the whole rail industry, and improve the value for money the sector delivers for passengers, taxpayers, freight customers and funders.

Eye readers may be interested to know that the RDG's stunning contribution to the review of franchising following the InterCity West Coast fiasco has merited the organisation an entry in the latest issue of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

It reads: 'Mostly pointless'.
