About Us About Us Who are We? We are a Train Operating Company, and the lovely people at the Department for Transport have asked us to run our trains in and around the glorious East Midlands until at least March 2018. And if we're really good they might ask us to do it for another 12 months. Find out more about rail franchising and how it works Across our patch we run two types of services: Our Local Line Services - we run services on our local lines through some of the most scenic countryside in the UK. Our Main Line Service - we also whoosh loads of people everyday in and out of the big smoke on the Midland mainline which runs between Sheffied and London, cruising along at 125mph. Whether you're travelling in Standard or First Class our fabulous Customer Experience team are committed to making sure you have a smooth journey.
