TRAIN firm Northern Rail is celebrating first class success.
The South Yorkshire local rail operator is one of only 18 companies in the UK to achieve five-star accreditation in the European Foundation for Quality Management’s ‘Recognised for Excellence’ programme.
The accolade comes soon after the company was Train Operator of the Year at the Rail Business Awards.
Ian Bevan, managing director at Northern Rail, said: “We’re delighted. This award is recognition of our continued drive to improve the service we offer our customers and the way we do our business.
“The fact we are among only a small number of organisations in Europe to achieve this excellence rating is a major accolade and testament to the dedication of our employees.”
