Mission & purpose

Northern plays a vital role in the north of England by connecting tens of thousands of people by rail to work, leisure, education and more every day. We are publicly-owned, headquartered in York, and our parent company is DfT OLR Holdings Ltd (DOHL) which is owned by the Secretary of State for Transport. Northern Trains Limited is a subsidiary of DOHL. There are many exciting plans and benefits to come for Northern. These include: - The continued roll-out of new state-of-the-art trains with a top speed of 100mph - Extra capacity delivered by the new fleet - A major deep cleaning program of all trains - An overhaul of on-board cleanliness to ensure every journey will be made on a train fit for passengers - New technology is being trialled to identify crowding pinch points to reduce overcrowding - Work is underway to extend platforms at 30 stations across the network to allow for longer trains and to improve journeys
