Network Rail today announced that following discussion with the Association of Train Operating Companies, Graham Eccles, an executive director of the Stagecoach Group and Chairman of South West Trains and the Virgin Rail Group, has been appointed as an advisor to Network Rail.

The new four-day-a-month advisory role will help Network Rail as it develops its train operations structure and procedures within the new organisation that is being put in place as a result of the decision to take all maintenance in-house. Graham will act as advisor while continuing with all his other Stagecoach duties.

John Armitt, Chief Executive, said: “Network Rail is determined to improve train performance and we are delighted to be able to draw on Graham’s experience in order to ensure the closest possible working between Network Rail and the train operators, which is vital to deliver improved punctuality. Graham Eccles said: “I am delighted to be able to represent the train operators in helping Network Rail get to grips with improving train service delivery.”
