Partnership Services Designated

The Buxton and Glossop services have now been formally designated by the Department for Transport.  That is great news, and something we have been working towards for a considerable time.  This will give us access to additional funding and bring many advantages.  The link to the DfT website is https://www.gov.uk/government/news/rail-passengers-in-the-north-west-set-for-bigger-say--3
