unstar this property answer text <p>Grand Central will not pay the same access charges as Intercity East Coast as Open Access Operators do not pay Fixed Track Access Charges (FTAC).

unstar this property answer text <p>The Department has contracted a minimum level of service to all destinations which is broadly at today’s level, with the franchisee having flexibility to operate services in addition to this. There are also several notable enhancements to the current level of service at destinations such as Bradford Forster Square, Harrogate, Shipley, York, Newcastle and Edinburgh. Stations such as Thornaby, Middlesbrough, Dewsbury, Huddersfield and Sunderland will receive InterCity East Coast services for the first time.</p><p> </p><p><del class="ministerial">In some instances the number of daily services contracted at intermediate stations is a marginal reduction from the current level. These are typically a reduction of 1 daily call only, in one direction (to / from London) and will be often only temporary prior to the introduction of new rolling stock. Stations that will receive a minor reduction include: Morpeth, Alnmouth, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Dunbar and Darlington.</del></p><p><ins class="ministerial">In one year, the number of daily services at Stevenage is a marginal reduction from the current level.
