Rail Minister in York

The Rail Minister Simon Burns has been in York to see the old and the new working in harmony at the city's rail sites. First he saw the start of work on the new rail operating centre.

Network Rail says it will allow them to deliver a modern, efficient service and retain rail jobs in the city. He also officially opened a new turntable which has been relocated from London with a little help from an old locomotive which Harry Potter fans will recognise as "Hogwarts Castle". **
