Title: Chiltern Railways services - a new board on the Coffee Shop forum
Post by: Chris from Nailsea on September 01, 2012, 02:27:00 pm
Chiltern Railways is owned by Deutsche Bahn AG and is part of Arriva. Since winning the franchise in 1996, Chiltern Railways has run scheduled passenger services along the M40 corridor between London Marylebone and Birmingham Snow Hill and London Marylebone to Aylesbury via Amersham along the London Underground Metropolitan line. In 2002 they extended their operations as far as Kidderminster and in 2004 they took over services between Stratford-upon-Avon and London.

This board is provided for all customers of Chiltern Railways.  Industry experts are very welcome to contribute; very often things happen and decisions are made that perplex the traveller, and a quick question / few words of explanation can rapidly bring forth an answer which explains why.

The new board here has been set up with a few of the existing topics on the subject of Chiltern being moved here from the original FGW boards.  Feedback from our many readers tells us that they have learned a great deal from reading posts and threads about neighbouring operators, so we've now added several new boards for neighbouring lines.  In time, we may need to change the main board from "FIRST Great Western", and indeed run under a more generic name.  However, it should be stressed that these boards are run and hosted by a rail customer, for other rail customers and are totally independent of any of the companies concerned.

We have a number of rules and guidelines right across the Coffee Shop forum - you can read the introduction here (http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/coffeeshop/index.php?topic=1761.0), and we welcome signups from anyone who would like to ask questions on, or discuss, anything relating to Chiltern Railways, in line with those guidelines.  Initially, you may find that the board starts quiet - and that means that you can be a great help in contributing.  Thank you, and welcome!
