The next Open Meeting of the Coastliners Rail User Group will take place on Thursday 18 January 2018 at 7.15pm in the Reading Room of The Athenaeum Club, Church Street, Hartlepool. The room will be available to us from shortly after 6.30pm and we will be welcome to use the bar until it closes not long after 10.30pm.
This will be an information meeting as there is a lot going on behind the scenes on which to both report and discuss. Since the last meeting the Coastliners committee has met with with Alex Bray, Stakeholder Liaison Manager at Cross Country, in regard to the forthcoming invitation to tender for the Cross Country franchise and expects this week to meet with Hartlepool’s Member of Parliament, Mike Hill in order to exchange views on railway matters. Additionally Northern Railway will have held a meeting on 11th January, on the subject of Community Rail Partnerships.
There is therefore much to discuss on 18th January. Both members and fellow travellers are welcome.
