    Britain's rail network cuts services, Heathrow shrinks

    Britain's rail network will operate half its normal service during the coronavirus crisis, the government and rail industry body said on Friday, and Heathrow Airport's operations will shrink as more of the country goes into a partial shutdown. From Monday, trains will only run on core services, equivalent to about half the passenger trains on a normal weekday, to reflect the drop-off in demand as more and more Britons work from home and stop travelling. Heathrow Airport, the country's biggest, also said on Friday that it would partially shut down some operations after coronavirus brought most air travel to a standstill.

    FirstGroup to sell North American units, not seeing coronavirus impact

    British bus and rail company FirstGroup <FGP.L> announced plans to sell its two North American-based bus units, as it said it had not seen a significant impact from coronavirus on demand for travel so far. The company said a formal sale process for the North American units, which run yellow school bus services and bus contracts in the U.S. and Canada, was underway and there was significant interest expressed by potential buyers. Major shareholder Coast Capital Management had pressured FirstGroup to sell the businesses, saying there were no synergies between the company's UK and North American operations.

    Britain considers nationalising South Western Railway contract

    Britain's Department for Transport said the South Western Railway (SWR)contract was not financially sustainable in the long term and it was considering whether to nationalise the network. The DfT said in a statement on Wednesday that while SWR had not yet failed to meet financial commitments, its peformance was such that the government was working on contigency measures. The dire situation at SWR, which connects southern England to London, comes at a time of wider problems within Britain's privatised rail system, following the failure of several high-profile rail contracts and amid consumer complaints over strikes and poor service.

    FirstGroup mulling options for U.S. assets

    The announcement comes less than a month after FirstGroup said it would focus on its core U.S. contracting businesses, which include the First Student school bus service and First Transit transportation service, leading to calls from two top shareholders to sell those assets instead. Coast Capital Management and Robert Tchenguiz had separately asserted that Aberdeen-based FirstGroup's U.S. assets had no synergies with its operations at home, which include a bus and rail division. The company, which last month reported a bigger first-half loss, has already put its iconic North American intercity bus service Greyhound up for sale this year, due to competition from low-cost airlines and a drop in demand.

    UPDATE 2-FTSE 100 underperforms global peers on 3i drop, sterling gains

    London's FTSE 100 underperformed its major global peers on Thursday, suffering its steepest intra-day drop so far this month as falls in private equity company 3i, stocks trading ex-dividend and a stronger pound hammered the exporter-heavy index.
