About South Western Railway
On 20th August 2017 South West Trains commenced operations in the South of England. The new franchise, officially known as South West Trains, promises a range of new benefits for its passengers. It plans to invest £1.2bn ($1.5bn) between 2017 and 2024 to introduce brand-new and refurbished trains, including 52,000 more seats during peak commuter hours. You can also expect faster WiFi, better onboard bathrooms and charging points. Stagecoach Southwestern Trains is registered in England and Wales and started Southwest Trains rail service in 1996. The Twickenham-London Waterloo line was the first officially privatized regular train line in 48 years. The South Western Railway network includes lines through Hampshire, Surrey, Dorset, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Devon, Somerset and Greater London. These routes are used by commuters and long-distance passengers. The company's six main routes are the South West Mainline, Portsmouth Direct, West of England Mainline, Wessex Mainline, London Waterloo to Portsmouth Harbor Line and London Waterloo to Reading Line.
