BigJigs, a Folkestone based toy maker, have submitted an offer to take over the West Coast rail franchise that has wasted so much public and private money to date.
They were told by the Department of Transport that perhaps their trains, with ony 2 carriages each, might not be able to carry enough passengers, and the inability to tilt might make them dangerous at high speed, but their brightly coloured livery was praised.
Big Jigs are going to “make a few minor changes ot the bid and resubmit it.”
Not mentioned, is that BigJigs seem to be running a successful business, which is becoming ararity in this country, and they have a great sense of humour.
I think they are aiming too low. I think whoever put in that bid should be world president emperor for life. I’ll vote for them.
