first_imgEUROPE: The Alpha Trains Luxembourg No 2 subsidiary of leasing company Alpha Trains acquired 202 locomotive and passenger rolling stock assets from The Royal Bank of Scotland plc at the end of 2013. The mixed asset and shares transaction was financed by a commercial-secured debt facility provided by a consortium of lenders.The vehicles are leased to several European operators, and have been managed by Alpha Trains on behalf of RBS since a consortium of investors acquired Angel Trains from RBS in August 2008 and separated the international business from UK activities. ‘This is a key transaction for Alpha Trains and an important step in our strategy of growing the business’, said CEO Shaun M Mills. ‘We know the assets well, having managed their delivery and operation since 2008, and are looking forward to fully integrating them in our business for the benefit of our customers.’ Law firm White & Case advised Alpha Trains on the deal. ‘Given the number of assets involved and the cross-border nature of the operation of the assets, both the financing and security package and the sale mechanics were particularly complex,’ said White & Case partner Louise Mor. ‘Bringing together a team of lawyers from across seven offices demonstrates the value we are able to provide to our clients on big-ticket, pan-European transactions.’ The shareholders in Alpha Trains are Arcus Infrastructure, Public Sector Pension Investment Board and AMP Capital Investors. It has a portfolio of around 370 locomotives and 300 passenger trains managed by a staff of 70 based in Luxembourg, Antwerpen, Köln and Madrid.last_img read more

first_imgCOLOMBIA: During the course of a public hearing held on August 3, national infrastructure agency ANI declared the concession held by Ferrocarril del Pacífico SAS to have lapsed. The concession covers the upgrading, maintenance and operation of freight services on the Buenaventura — Cali, Cali — La Felisa and Zarzal — La Tebaida routes.According to ANI, FDP has failed to comply with the terms of the concession, with ‘serious’ infractions including the disposal of property without prior consent. The concessionaire has also allegedly failed to provide detailed monthly reports on progress with the upgrade programme.Under the terms of the ruling, the concessionaire would be liable to pay US$32∙8m in damages to the state for its failure to meet contract terms. ANI also notes that FDP has separately been fined US$275m for suspending freight services in 2016, a government inspection having revealed a failure to maintain track and structures to the required standards.A further hearing is due to be held at ANI headquarters in Bogotá on August 18 to consider the response from the concessionaire and its guarantors. Should the concession be wound up, assets and infrastructure would revert to the state. ANI would then work with local authorities and other parties to seek funding to tender a new concession, one that would ‘meet the current needs’ of freight customers while ensuring the ‘sustainability’ of the concession model.last_img read more

Anyone who can help us in this investigation can call us at Dumfries on 101, or if they want to remain anonymous, then through the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.“Sadly this incident serves to highlight the importance of planning a night out in relation to how you are going to get home, and who with.  In particular it is important not to travel home alone after a night out where possible, and to take care that only vehicles that are actually registered as a taxi are used to travel home in.”last_img read more

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInRobert Burns enthusiasts from all over Scotland gathered at Ruthwell, Dumfries and Galloway on 18th July to commemorate the visit of the poet to the nearby Brow Well in July 1796.  Burns was in the last stages of emaciation and debility caused by bacterial endocarditis. Curable now with penicillin, it was untreatable in Burns’ days but his physician, Dr. William Maxwell, recommended drinking the spa water from the chalybeate well, rich in iron salts, and to wade in the Solway, daily, up to the armpits. The ceremony, organised by Dumfries & Galloway Burns Association, was held in Ruthwell Church where President Russell Williamson welcomed the company and invited the Locum Minister of Cummertrees, Mouswald and Ruthwell Congregation, the Rev. Gerald Moule, to lead the devotions.  Ian McIntyre, President of the Robert Burns World Federation delivered an oration touching on the poet’s last days and the visit to the well. He concluded with a poem published a century ago in the Gallovidian magazine by “Heston”, the last verse reading, “Back to Dumfries! Whaur Bonnie Jean awaits my coming sair; And let me lie whaur Nith lilts by, Sae sweetly, evermair.”  A lament on the pipes was played by Gregor Grierson, Junior Burnsian of the Year, 2018- 2019. before the company made its way to the Well where a commemorative wreath was laid by Mr. McIntyre. Later, a social evening was held at the Cairndale Hotel, Dumfries when the entertainment was MC’d by Association junior vice president Colin Gibson with a Vote of Thanks at the conclusion proposed by senior vice president Fiona Evans.last_img read more
