An NB employee on FB stated that only two on-train staff are based at Kidderminster, with most being based in the north ("Crewe onwards"). There was also mention by someone else that the plan was to continue with "business as usual" at Kidderminster for the forseeable future.


That doesn't include the maintenance staff hired at Kidderminster. How could they make savings if they didn't move all maintenance to Carnforth unless they mean winter maintenance taking place at Carnforth and day to day maintenance at Kidderminster.

I see it is now branded 'Northern Belle' and the website has moved to https://www.northernbelle.co.uk/

It is operated by Northern Belle Limited, and it is that company has been sold to the new owners.

EDIT: webmaster, can the title be changed to remove Belmond?
