An Odd Post : But Please Support Virgin Trains West Coast Line

In the 6 years of Tribute Most Haunted I have never promoted anything personal to me, but now I ask you all to please support something very dear to me.

You have all seen it it on the news it was annouced Virgin Trains has lost the West Coast Line to a higher bidder. Why is this dear to me to you ask.

My daughter left school some 7 years ago, like so many others, with no plans for the future. She was lucky when she landed her first job working for a contractor supplying catering hostesses for Virgin Tains. I was so proud my daughter had her first job, over the years she has blossomed in her job since being employed by Virgin Trains, become a stronger person, got married and made me even prouder of her.

She rang me on Tuesday fearful of her job, and so the Virgin story unfolded. I read these news articles in depth and through this I ask for your support.

If you don’t know whats going on please I ask you to read the news and make your own mind up. My view is strong, firstly yes its personal I fear for my daughters job, secondly I ask a question ! After the what the country has been through and promises from governments, bidders on contracts and a like do you really believe anyone coming in from the cold can do a better job than Virgin or is it just another bid to line a companies pockets then just up the prices and lower the services once they have the contract ??

Thanks for listening and supporting Tribute Most Haunted and hope you may support me in this

  1. Hi – my friend took a video of her little boy on christmas day, there was an orb clearly visable, dotting around for a good few seconds, she has saved the video, her little two year old said he gets visited by Daddies Mummy, he would not know her as he had never seen a picture – is there anyone we can take the video to, just maybe to explain what it could be???

  2. Hi WebmasterPLG

    See from the news last night that they are JUST realising that maybe they made a mistake. Frightening isnt it …….

    Anyway looks like the ball is at Richard B foot and he will have to step in to keep the trains running over Christmas.
    This has been a farce!

    Fingers crossed for a positive outcome for your daughter.

  3. Hi WebmasterPLG.

    I’m sorry to hear about this, there’s not much I can say that would help you, but I hope that things will work out for your daughter and that you have the support of everyone on this wonderful page that you have created. x

  4. The company will have to find an average of about £390m a year in premium payments to the government (it’s much less at the start of the franchise and gets much bigger as the years roll on). Virgin currently pays about £160m.

    MMM wonder why the government has backed this??????

    Lunacy!! and i have only read one page omg

  5. @ WebmasterPLG, Hi
    Such sad news and so close to your heart and probably many others.

    ‘do you really believe anyone coming in from the cold can do a better job than Virgin or is it just another bid to line a companies pockets then just up the prices and lower the services once they have the contract ??’

    No sounds like common sense has gone out the window again to me??

    Had not heard of the story but will read up on it. Best of luck to you and your Daughter x
