I have to wonder if we might find our trains run by DfT OLR Holdings Limited rather than First from 1st April 2020 should we have a Labour government replace the current one.

I think you can stop's more likely than that.

Keep wondering - a Labour Government doesn't seem that likely!

From the BBC:

Clare Gilmartin, chief executive of Trainline, said: "We are witnessing continued strong growth in rail and, having experienced first-hand the transformative effect of online and mobile in other e-commerce markets, I am hugely excited by the opportunity that the fast-developing online rail market offers."

From This is money

Trainline boss has her pay cut in half as travel restrictions cause a plunge in rail journeys and stations to empty
* Clare Gilmartin scooped a fortune of over 50million following Trainline's IPO
* Rail journeys are about 95 per cent lower compared to this time last year
* Trainline says since it went public, ticket sales and profits have gone up

The head of rail ticket firm Trainline Claire Gilmartin has agreed to have her salary reduced by 50 per cent as the government lockdown causes passenger rail numbers to plummet across the UK.

Those on the board of directors and management meanwhile will have their take-home pay drop by 20 per cent, while bonuses for the executive directors and management team have been postponed.

The company has been severely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, which has forced governments to introduce controls on travelling and social distancing.
