Virgin on verge of appointment

Virgin Rail is on the verge of appointing consultancies to design train interiors for its Cross Country and West Coast Main Lines. It currently has a shortlist of six, from which it is likely to appoint three consultancies with different design capabilities.

This marks a break from the client’s past. It previously appointed one interior designer to create all the design elements (DW 6 March). The same groups will create the interiors for both rail lines.
