New East Midlands franchise colour scheme has just been announced. This Franchise is being taken over by stagecoach. The colours involved are very similar to those used on the 442 and 444 electrics.

Looks very nice on the artists impression of Meridian.

BBC seem to think so


Hopefully they will mingle the liveries into their Midland Mainline as well

Something very strange going on here. BBC has National Express winning the EC franchise and also state they own Midland Mainline which I believe is correct


RB's link states Stagecoach is the owner of the Midland Mainline franchise
Or is this a case of present and future owners


Still no "00" meridian though either way. By the way the new livery looks horrible IMHO.

Darobi, Nat Express own Midland Mainline now . It gets taken over by Stagecoach in November where new colour scheme referred to will apply.

In a seperate announcement Nat express takes over the ECML franchise from GNER. Personally I think this is a shame as GNER have done so much to advance rail travel over last 10 years. However we will see. looks like the end of GNER blue, however!
