Train operators reacted angrily to accusations of the manipulation of train
journey times today. An Association of Train Operating Companies (ATOC)
spokesman said:

"This-so-called finding is utterly vacuous. It is a cocktail of innuendo and
speculation designed for the entertainment of rail enthusiasts."

"The facts are the Franchising Director has set contractual standards for
journey times in the franchise agreement as part of Passenger Service
Requirements, which it monitors closely."

"These allow for recovery time and contingency allowances for engineering
works, but not for arbitrary journey time lengthening."
