Work­ing on the rail­road

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

YEARS ago, I re­mem­ber a won­der­ful fam­ily hol­i­day in Scot­land on which we trav­elled from Lon­don to In­ver­ness by Mo­torail—what an ex­cit­ing jour­ney it was! The tiny com­part­ments were im­mac­u­late, with pris­tine white-cot­ton sheets. Sadly, this ser­vice came to an end some years ago. My hus­band and I have bought a hol­i­day home in Caith­ness and it takes two days to drive the 800 miles, bat­tling with the traffic. The Gov­ern­ment has plans to tackle air pol­lu­tion by re­duc­ing diesel ve­hi­cles on mo­tor­ways and low­er­ing the speed limit to 60mph, but is it time for a rein­tro­duc­tion of the great Mo­torail ser­vice?
