버진, 미국 철도 시장 확대 노력


Virgin Trains is looking to get a foothold in the US rail market and has held meetings with the US Congress Transportation and Infrastruc-ture Committee to advise it on a possible sell-off of the government-controlled northeast corridor.

Tony Collins, CEO of Virgin Trains, said: “We have been in discussions with the committee over the past few months.

They are desperate to see how we’ve done it in the UK and we are interested in overseas opportunities.”

In particular Virgin is interested in running the 457-mile route from Washington to Boston and is already involved in a consortium with Alstom, which would manufacture the trains and be part of the bidding process.
