New Franchisee from 1st April

As of 1st April, Northern Rail no longer have the franchise to provide our train services. The new franchisee is Arriva Rail North.
In terms of ownership, what this means is that our trains are operated by a subsidiary of the German government instead of a subsidiary of the Dutch government.
Notwithstanding any media hype, don’t expect any changes apart from the obligatory new logo, until December 2017.
