First Great Western explores converting first class carriages

An option to reduce the number of first class carriages on First Great Western (FGW) trains is being explored by the operator.

The company, which operates trains from Maidenhead into London, is in talks with the Department for Transport (DfT) about converting some first class carriages into standard class to increase capacity.

A spokesman for First Great Western confirmed discussions were taking place with the Government, but said there were no further updates at this stage.

Do you think more first class carriages should be converted into standard class? Tell us in the box below.
