Strathclyde's passenger transport authority is to take legal action to keep control of trains it has paid for but which have been passed to privatised rolling stock companies, reports The Scotsman (p1).

Charles Gordon, the region's transport company chairman, said:

'We are determined to retain control of the rolling stock in Strathclyde which has been paid for over the years by the region's passenger transport authority.

'We are not saying they can't be used anywhere else because at the moment we let ScotRail use it for other services, provided we agree with it and are compensated or it.

'We want continued recognition that when it comes to Strathclyde trolling stock we call the shots. We call the tune because we pay the piper.'

The case could reach court this week, The Scotsman reports.
