Great Cen­tral re­jected

Rail (UK) - - Open Access -

I am ex­pe­ri­enc­ing déjà vu when cor­re­spon­dents put for­ward the ‘new’ idea that the old Great Cen­tral should be re­opened.

Around 20 years ago a com­pany called Cen­tral Rail­way did a lot of work on this. It was re­jected by Par­lia­ment for all sorts of rea­sons.

It has been closed for 50 years, and vast tracts have been lost or built over. It is, in ef­fect, a new rail­way with all the prob­lems that in­curs. Bill Craven, Daven­try
