Alliance Rail Holdings

Alliance Rail Holdings (Alliance) is a Company established to provide new direct rail services between many northern towns and cities, whilst also offering direct links to London, both through Euston and Kings Cross.

Alliance is now currently undertaking detailed timetabling and economic work to support it’s application to the ORR for the establishment of these new rail routes.

This work will also provide the opportunity to review the potential for the re-introduction of a more regular Inter-City service at locations such as Nuneaton and Tamworth, and also offer new direct services between West Yorkshire and Crewe, allowing easy onward connections to Wales and the South West.

Delivering new ‘open access’ rail services – outside the franchising system – is a costly and complicated process, but the team at Alliance has a wealth of experience in the identification and delivery of such services.
