Long-dis­tance ex­tras

Rail (UK) - - Letters -

We al­ready have a fairly com­pre­hen­sive network of ‘in­ten­sive’ reg­u­lar-in­ter­val in­ter-city ser­vices, both Lon­don-based and cross-coun­try. There are, how­ever, some awk­ward longer-dis­tance jour­neys ne­ces­si­tat­ing at least

one change of train. Per­haps we also need an ‘ex­ten­sive’ sec­ondary set of ser­vices, giv­ing through jour­ney op­por­tu­ni­ties on a low fre­quency (once or twice a day) to ‘plug the gaps’ and com­ple­ment the reg­u­lar in­ter­val network?

Pos­si­ble ex­am­ples might be Euston-Dum­fries/Ayr, Cardif­fEd­in­burgh, Brighton-Manch­ester, and Le­ices­ter/ Not­ting­hamGlas­gow. David Cooper, Bletch­ley
