Dear James
Re: Hitachi Rail Limited - Application for Directions under Section 17 of the Railways Act
1993ORR letter of 30 October 2020.
Abellio East Midlands Limited (AEM) hereby presents its response to the request made by ORR in its
letter of 30 October 2020. The response here follows the format of the letter of 30 October 2020.
Draft Depot Access Agreement
Fuel point exams including Ad Blu have been detailed separately on Schedule 6 as requested.
Schedule 5 has been adjusted to reflect this.
Stabling charges were incorrectly stated as included within Schedule 5 the statement in Schedule 8
has been corrected.
Access/movement charges have been removed from Schedule 12 but are included now as a
separate item under Schedule 5. Whilst AEM notes ORRs point regarding movement/access being
included as part of each individual service element AEM provides for this separately. This supports the
premise that AEM has to reflect the overall operating and management provision required when
offering services to third parties and this is most efficiently provided through a distinct calculated
access/movement charge. The access/movement charges are made up of the costs of overhead
costs not already assigned to a specific maintenance or presentation activity for example the stores,
operations and tech office costs of the depot. Further detail of the costs within the overhead base
assigned to Neville Hill are shown below.
Accompanying Spreadsheets
In response to the following query:
The overhead costs per vehicle amount to circa 55% of the total unit cost per vehicle. For reasons of
transparency, please provide a breakdown of the items that Abellio East Midlands (AEM) has included
