New hourly trains are due

The Scarborough Evening News - - NEWS -

New rail­way timeta­bles set to come into force later this year will in­clude an hourly ser­vice be­tween Scar­bor­ough and Bridling­ton.

The new timeta­bles are set to be­gin in May and will run be­tween Hull and Scar­bor­ough.

Although North­ern Rail has not of­fi­cially con­firmed the ser­vice, an East Rid­ing of York­shire Coun­cil agenda re­port runs through the plans.

The new timetable will see trains run be­tween Bridling­ton and Scar­bor­ough ev­ery hour com­pared to the cur­rent ser­vices which runs 1 hours 30 min­utes to 2 hours apart.

Ed­die Parker, from Hull and East Rid­ing Rail Users As­so­ci­a­tion con­firmed the changes.

He said: “The hourly ser­vice from Hull to Scar­bor­ough is a bril­liant idea, a real plus for the line, es­pe­cially in the hol­i­day sea­son.

“It means fam­i­lies from places like Goole can wake up on a sunny day, jump on a train and head to the beach.”
