Tyne Valley Community Railway Partnership Strengthened
Fiona Forsythe has joined the Hexham based team of the Tyne Valley Community Railway Partnership. Initially, Fiona and existing CRP officer John Gillott will job share which will provide more officer time for the Partnership. This is an important year as the Northern franchise moves from Northern Rail to Arriva. Service expansion and new trains are in Arriva’s contract as are considerably more resources for Community Rail Partnerships across the Northern franchise.
