Grand Central Rail is an established train operating company providing high quality rail services under an open-access
framework. We are one of three Open Access operators in the UK and operate on a fully commercial basis providing
high speed rail services on two routes; from the North East of England and York to London, and from West Yorkshire and
Doncaster to London.
For Huddersfield Town fans, and business associates, we conveniently call at local stations, Brighouse and Mirfield, with
direct services to the capital. We work hard to recruit and train staff for our trains. Our committed and passionate people are our most valuable asset, and we always get involved with our local communities and charitable events. Our aim is to provide the best possible customer service, recreating the best of the railway tradition of quality and attention to detail. You’ll find our staff really do care about you and your comfort – after all, we’d like you to travel with us again. In 2016 we topped the rankings in the National Rail Passenger Survey, conducted by Transport Focus, with passengers citing cleanliness of interiors, upkeep of trains, legroom and value for money. Our trains provide you with plenty of legroom and tables, free Wi-Fi in both standard and First Class and warm and friendly staff.
