French rail operator SNCF launches bid to run West Coast Partnership

It joined forces with Virgin Trains to enter the competition for the West Coast Partnership franchise, which will include services on the existing West Coast route from 2019 and initial HS2 trains between the capital and West Midlands from 2026.
