West of EnglandLocal stakeholders and passengers were invited to join a special South West Trains service on Friday 11th December to celebrate the introduction of the new and improved services for the region.

Starting on Sunday 13th December, South West Trains introduced more than 8,000 extra seats per week to stations across the West of England through new and extended services to stations in Somerset, Dorset, Devon and Wiltshire.

The special charter service was to thank local stakeholders and passengers for their feedback in helping to develop the new timetable improvements for many along the route and was attended by Tim Shoveller, Managing Director of South West Trains as well as local councillors, friends of station groups, transport bodies and rail stakeholders.

Tim Shoveller, Managing Director for South West Trains, said: “Our new timetable in the West of England has transformed the services available for many stations, with much more frequent services and better links with London Waterloo, Salisbury and Exeter St David’s.

“This was a great opportunity to visit many of the local stakeholders and communities who have helped us to introduce these new services as well as talk more about how we can build on these improvements in the near future.”
