I'm delighted that we have an agreement with the DfT that gives us the chance to continue providing high-quality services to our customers.
We have had great support from staff and customers in recent months and we will repay that loyalty with even better service.
We will not be sitting back in the coming months, but are keen to introduce more improvements to the service.
Remember the Virgin Trains mess? Later an official report into what went wrong will be made public.
The Government has been forced to admit the profitable West Coast Main Line contract has yet to be signed, thanks to a legal bid by Virgin.
