New Cross­Coun­try stock

Rail (UK) - - Let­ters -

One Fri­day re­cently, I boarded a Ply­mouth-Glasgow ser­vice at Derby. The Cross­Coun­try Voy­ager con­sisted of four coaches, one of them First Class. I man­aged to get a seat and the jour­ney was com­fort­able.

But by Sh­effield the train was packed, and the trol­ley per­son had an aw­ful job to get through.

Is a four-coach train re­ally ad­e­quate for a jour­ney of over 500 miles, as the train was still very busy as we pulled into Glasgow? I keep read­ing about new trains for var­i­ous op­er­a­tors, but Cross­Coun­try seems to have been for­got­ten. Fred Rogers, Derby
