Big price (and volume?) surge at 15.00 hrs. Anyone any thoughts? Obviously not the RNS announcing share purchase for the employee scheme.

agreed trt - but a the minus side Southern are the major operator at Gatwick ... and that is a lot of lost business - including the Gatwick Express which too is a premium faired route. The South Eastern site says they operate 200 trains per day on HS1, small fry compared to the number of trains calling at Gatwick Airport, before you even consider passengers going to London for Heathrow. I would be very surprised if it does actually have a positive effect on most rail companies, but obviously there are some that will benefit more than others. So is HS1 increased margin, or increased operating/track access costs?

You would hope, but it won't be Go-Via as both Go-Ahead and Keolis have said they are going alone in future. To be honest with bidders for East Coast due to be announced in a couple of months I would be very surprised to see a near identical list of bidders when announced on Friday. 3 bids would be expensive to resource and I would keep my A-team in reserve for the East Coast. Would also say that those short listed for Greater Anglia, will be in pole position to be short-listed for East Coast

Interim Management Statement 29th April will make very good reading. Don't forget the High Speed rail service from london to the kent coast that must have been packed and probably still is as passengers head for the ferries. The margins on the fares are much greater on this route than any other of GOG's routes.

Steve, take your point about the Gatwick Express. I assume GOG are hoping to tender for the new franchises?

trt ... yes and no. The winners will be the long distance franchises ... Eurostar, East and West Coast will be the winners. Franchise where they supply travellers to airports are likely to be losers. Imagine the Gatwick Express is running virtually empty at the moment.

Yes plus the fact rail companies are expected to benefit hugely from the closure of UK airspace as passengers use the railways to get to their destinations both here in the UK and in Europe.

From The Sunday Times April 18, 2010 Germans in £1.6bn Arriva bid Ben Marlow 24 Comments Recommend? (2) DEUTSCHE BAHN, the state-owned German transport group, is poised to make a £1.6 billion swoop on Britain's bus and train network. It is close to finalising the takeover of Arriva, the Sunderland-based group that is one of Britain's biggest operators of public transport. The Deutsche Bahn board meets to approve the bid this week. An agreed takeover is expected inside a fortnight. Bankers say the move could trigger a round of transport deals across Europe. Legislation is forcing the market to open up, leading to a land grab by the big players.

Bunnji, Well I have always said its just a matter of time before GOG receives a takeover approach. Any initial offer would have to be above £18.

Analysts at UBS have picked six UK companies they believe could receive takeover approaches, as merger and acquisition activity picks up. The six businesses added to the UBS mergers watchlist include transport groups GO-AHEAD, down 6p at £13.98, and National Express, 4.9p lower at 229.5p. Rival Arriva of course has already received an approach from Deutsche Bahn with France's SNCF also reported to be interested.

SNCF would probably be the best fit for Arriva but clearly the Germans and the Singaporeons are on the aqusition trail and Go Ahead would in my opinion be a good fit for either.Economic conditions are just right for takeovers, if bidders leave it too long and economies pick up as expected these UK rail companies are going to be worth an awful lot more and may well be out of reach of any bidder. Consolidation now makes financial sense and the Germans,French and Far East companies know this hence the action we have seen already. GOG will be on shopping lists its just a question of who and when and certainly before FGP as they have huge debts. Interesting press coment: March 25 (Bloomberg) -- Deutsche Bahn AG, Germany's state rail company, plans to run high-speed trains through the Channel Tunnel to bolster its share of the European travel market as it considers a bid for Britain's Arriva Plc. A consolidation of Europe's railways may leave no more than "five large operators," prompting the Berlin-based company to pursue expansion opportunities to strengthen its standing, Chief Executive Officer Ruediger Grube said today. "'We won't allow someone to pick the cherries off our cake," Grube said in Frankfurt after a results presentation. "That is why we will further actively expand our business activities beyond the national borders." END Its just a matter of time before a bid for GOG comes along. Quite often these bids come over the weekend and investors then wake up to the news on Monday mornings only to find the share price has been marked up considerably as the market opens for the day.They then try to grab a piece of the action as the share price continually rises. I always try to foresee such happenings and buy and hold - patience is a virtue and those with patience are often rewarded.

DelgroComfort would have to offload a large part of the combined London business in any deal involving Arriva and Go-Ahead .... as either when combined with Metroline would take them well over 25%, the maximum ceiling TfL will allow any one operator. Arriva and Go-Ahead are currently the 2 largest operators of London buses with over 20% market share each. My personal opinion is the French would be the best fit for Arriva, from a long-term operational perspective.

"Today the whisper in the City was that Singapore's ComfortDelGro, the operator of London's Metroline bus company, might also be interested in Arriva. Company bosses have said that their growth strategy was focused on three countries, including the UK." Yet another overseas country interested in UK rail companies - Germany, France and now Singapore. Hold onto your hat when two of them lose the chase for Arriva as GOG may well be next on their shopping list.
