Official shortlist announced to choose home of Great British Railways

Today [5th july 2022] the shortlist of the most suitable potential locations for the national headquarters of Great British Railways was announced, which will go forward to a consultative public vote to be held online and by post.

The confirmed list of shortlisted towns and cities is:

  • Birmingham
  • Crewe
  • Derby
  • Doncaster
  • Newcastle upon Tyne
  • York

Here in Cheshire I hope we will all be getting behind Crewe. 

The public vote is now open, this is consultative and will be used to test public support for each shortlisted location, allowing the people that the railway serves the chance to have their say.
