LPA is well positioned in future growth market sectors. Orders likely from the rail sector for the new £900m South West UK Bombardier Train contract, to be built in Derby UK for delivery 2019-2020. Bombardier update NICOLAS VAN PRAET MONTREAL INCLUDES CORRECTION AUGUST 24, 2017 German train maker Siemens AG is tempering expectations of an imminent deal with Bombardier Inc. to combine their rail businesses, saying it is "not in a hurry" to strike an agreement that would challenge industry colossus CRRC Corp. Bombardier shares fell 3.8 per cent in trading Thursday to close at $2.57, their biggest one-day drop since June 21. “In the long term, there might be an opportunity to form a real strong and powerful number two in the marketplace, which we believe is a Growth Market," Siemens chief executive Josef Kaeser told analysts on a conference call Thursday to discuss third quarter earnings. "But we are not in a hurry to rush to anything.” Kaeser's comments come roughly a week after Bombardier chief executive Alain Bellemare said the Canadian company continued to pursue "multiple" strategic options for its train unit. Considered together, they suggest that though the two companies are exploring a tie-up of some sort, no definitive agreement is looming.

Something I learned today The District of Newcastle is the only area in the UK that exports more than it Imports It is imperative therefore that it gets included in HS3 which the north of England now needs urgently , using electrified lines. Never did like George Osborne but he is on the right track here '' the cities of the North alone were too small to compete in an era of global "mega cities" like London, New York and Tokyo, but together could form a "powerhouse" given there is so little distance between them.'' Great cities of the north of England, such as Newcastle and Sheffield, are not individually large enough to be a counterweight to London. Join them together, however, and the population of about 10 million becomes significant enough to attract global interest. hTTp://news.sky.com/story/george-osborne-calls-for-hs3-rail-line-for-northern-england-11000074 HS3 train line from Hull to Liverpool will be built, Northern Powerhouse minister confirms Announcement comes after ex-chancellor George Osborne called for fresh investment 22 AUG 2017 A high-speed train line linking Hull to Liverpool will be built, the Northern Powerhouse Minister has announced. The comment from Minister Jake Berry came just hours after former chancellor George Osborne’s urged the Government to sign-off the major investment into High Speed Rail 3 (HS3), which could cost at least £7 billion. Mr Berry, during a trip to Hull today, replied "Yes" to journalists when asked whether HS3 would go ahead. The Mail contacted Mr Berry's Whitehall department, the Department for Communities and Local Government, but advisors seemed unaware of his policy announcement. Politicians and business chiefs had questioned whether HS3 would get the green light after the Department for Transport (DfT) cancelled electrification to Hull last year, and then between Sheffield and Manchester earlier this summer. Northern Powerhouse Minister, Jake Berry MP, pictured far left Mr Osborne – who was sacked from his top job by Theresa May last summer – had used interviews this morning to suggest that making such a “big commitment to the north” could be the best way for the Tory Party leader “relaunch” her prime ministerial career. The proposed HS3 line would link across the north, going from east to west to connect Hull to Sheffield, Leeds, Manchester and then Liverpool by direct rail. hTTp://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/news/hull-east-yorkshire-news/hs3-train-line-hull-liverpool-365071

These are the plans to improve Birmingham's train services as London Midland loses bid Key elements of the bid include free wi-fi on all services, 20,000 extra seats for rush hour passengers in Birmingham and 100 new carriages on an extended Cross City Line 16:09, 10 AUG 2017 A Dutch and Japanese consortium has won the battle to run key Birmingham rail services including the Cross City Line until 2026 it has been announced. West Midlands Train Ltd, a consortium of Abellio, East Japan Railway Company and Mitsuii & Co Ltd, has pledged £1 billion investment in services across the region in its bid. Key elements of the bid include free wi-fi on all services, 20,000 extra seats for rush hour passengers in Birmingham and 100 new carriages on an extended Cross City Line. West Midlands Mayor Andy Street said: “We want to see a new golden era for our local trains and today’s announcement is an important step towards that. “Having the ability to use our local knowledge and understanding to shape what West Midlands Trains will deliver for passengers and businesses has been a real game changer. “When it comes to our local train services we have not had this level of local influence and management before and it fits with the wider powers and responsibilities currently being transferred from Whitehall to the West Midlands. “The result of this influence is that we will see West Midlands Trains deliver more of the services that passengers want including earlier and later weekday services and more trains on Sundays. Transport secretary Chris Grayling added: “We are improving the whole travelling experience with lie train crowding information, compensation for people delayed by 15 minutes and above and better value tickets for part-time workers. ''This shows we are delivering on our commitment to build a railway that works for everyone.” The Abellio group beat off competition from Govia, the company which currently runs the London Midland franchise. The new franchise covers services across the West Midlands, as well as trains from London Euston to Crewe and from Liverpool to Birmingham. Dominic Booth, Managing Director of Abellio UK, said: “We are delighted to have been announced as preferred bidder for the West Midlands franchise, driving growth in one of the most exciting regions in the country. We will be investing nearly £1 billion into the network, delivering new trains, better stations and a whole host of other benefits for passengers.” Key plans include 20,000 extra seats for rush hour passengers in Birmingham. 50,000 standing places for Birmingham passengers in Metro-style carriages 100 new carriages on the Cross City line 80 new carriages for the Snow Hill line Compensation if delayed by more than 15 minutes Free WiFi on all main line services by the end of 2019 A roll out of smart ticketing and live passenger information Trains and stations branded in a purple, yellow and white West Midlands Railway livery 800 digital information screens across 150 stations £70 million investment in depots £60 million in station upgrades with more parking spaces, cycle racks and better waiting facilities More trains between Birmingham and Shrewsbury Regular two trains per hour to Rugeley on the Chase Line Extension of the Cross City Line to Bromsgrove More Sunday services on the Cross City Line More services between Birmingham and Stoke-on-Trent Sunday services between Stourbridge Junction and Birmingham increase from two to six per hour Extra evening services between Walsall and London. hTTp://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/plans-improve-birminghams-train-services-13456643

Chairman's statement closing paragraph in the Interim Report: 'We expect good progress in orders and sales through the remainder of this year and the current order book underpins the situation for the medium term. The future looks encouraging.' After re-reading this morning, felt the need to add a few more.

I found this interesting, re needing skilled staff Spanish train maker CAF to open new £30m factory in South Wales creating 300 jobs 13 July 2017 A leading Spanish train maker is opening a factory in Wales, creating 300 jobs. CAF is ploughing £30million into the plant at the Celtic Business Park in Newport, a former steelworks that is not far from the steel hub of Port Talbot. The Welsh government is understood to have offered a grant of around £3million, helping the area beat about 100 other locations being looked at across the UK. Due to open in 2018, the factory will build and test trains including diesel, electric, high-speed and trams. Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones said: ‘This £30million investment is a major economic boost that we hope will kick-start the growth of our rail sector and create hundreds of highly skilled, very well-paid jobs.’ Welsh economy secretary Ken Skates said: ‘This will underpin the development of the rail sector in Wales and places us at the heart of an industry with massive growth potential. ‘As well as creating 300 high-calibre jobs, it also coincides with our major Welsh Government Metro rail investment in south-east Wales, details of which will be unveiled over the coming weeks.’ The investment announcement coincided with a three-day state visit by Spain’s King Felipe and Queen Letizia. Spanish infrastructure firm Sacyr also unveiled plans for a new office in London. Richard Garner, CAF’s UK director, said it planned to increase its work in the UK, where it has more than £800million in contracts, at a time of huge development in the industry. CAF is looking at contracts on the new HS2 high-speed line, having worked for major projects and companies including Heathrow Express, Northern Ireland Railways, Arriva Rail North and FirstGroup. On Wednesday, CAF announced it was buying the Nottingham engineering consultancy BWB Consulting, to help with expansion plans. hTTp://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/news/article-4694098/Spanish-train-maker-CAF-open-factory-South-Wales.html#ixzz4oncM3fLq

Think people were stripping out the property gain and deciding the organic growth was not that clever. But it does look cheap and seems poised for a decent run.

Chairman's comments (on 26th June) "In my comments at the Annual General Meeting, I reported that the Group had established itself on a new trading level and that this was being sustained with excellent levels of orders and sales. I am delighted to report that this remains the case. "Our new manufacturing facilities give us the capacity and improved productivity to continue to grow and prosper. "Our current order book underpins expected progress in the remainder of this financial year and in the medium term. "As a measure of our continued confidence, the interim dividend has been increased by 5.0% to 1.05p." Personally, unable to find much wrong with that so current price weakness is puzzling. With the PE ratio possibly around 10 (ish) at this price , added a few more yesterday.
