End of the line?

Trains could reach des­ti­na­tion

Yorkshire Post - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

BY BUILD­ING greater flex­i­bil­ity into the timeta­bles, there’s a pos­si­bil­ity that more Tran­sPen­nine Ex­press trains will ac­tu­ally reach their fi­nal des­ti­na­tion – and not leave so many pas­sen­gers stranded. Epit­o­mised by the plight of scores of Scar­bor­ough­bound cricket sup­port­ers who got no fur­ther than Mal­ton, it does ap­pear that rail op­er­a­tors – and oth­ers – are fi­nally lis­ten­ing to the trav­el­ling pub­lic.

It should not have taken this long for them to do so. Not only should TPE be fully hon­our­ing its timetable com­mit­ments to ma­jor des­ti­na­tions like Scar­bor­ough, Mid­dles­brough and Manch­ester Air­port rather than halt­ing so many trains at in­ter­me­di­ate sta­tions, but it also needs to be the end of the line for the chaos and mis­man­age­ment that has caused so much dam­age to the econ­omy and the wider rep­u­ta­tion of this re­gion.
