Description:
<!----><!-- looks pretty good now -->

First TransPennine Express is a British train operating company. It is a joint operation between First Group (55%) and Keolis (45%). It operates regular passenger services in northern England, including services linking the west and east coasts across the Pennines. The franchise runs from 2004 to 2012 with an optional extension of five years.

The original service and brand name TransPennine Express was launched in late 1998 by Northern Spirit, and maintained by its successor, Arriva Trains Northern. On 1 February 2004, the service became a separate franchise, also incorporating the Manchester Airport to Cumbria and Lakes Line (Oxenholme to Windermere) routes from First North Western but minus the Bradford to Blackpool service. TransPennine Express later took over the Manchester Airport to Blackpool service.

First TransPennine Express is one of the few train operating companies in the United Kingdom running 24 hours a day, including through New Year's Eve night. For example, trains run between York, Leeds and Manchester Airport at least every three hours every night of the week.
