NRES - better late than never?

This from the Sleeper...

Nice of NRE to tell me that the 15:38  to Norwich is running 5 minutes late...two weeks after it happened.

Doh! NRES fail.

Movers, shakers and old friends

A busy weekend of people news.

According to Passenger Transport magazine, Elaine Holt, has left the National Express bid team after less than a year in post.

Meanwhile Eye understands that congratulations are due to Bob Holland who is taking on the role of Arriva's MD UK Rail and Bus.

With Bob's elevation Steve Murphy, MD of LOROL, will step up to become Arriva's Chief Operating Officer UK Rail. No news yet on who will take the helm at Loo Roll.

It is also good to hear that industry favourite Jonson Cox continues to go from strength to strength. The former Railtrack Chief Operating Officer is currently trying to turn around UK Coal which is in danger of falling into the hands of administrators. 

Good luck.

And in happier news Iain Coucher has resurfaced as MD of restructuring specialists Alvarez & Marshal. Iain will be looking to grow A&M's client base in transport and infrastructure.

Perhaps offering to restructure Great Minster House would be a good starting point?
