Gov­ern­ment urged to end night­mare rail jour­neys

Manchester Evening News - - LETTERS, COMMENTS AND EMAILS -

A pres­sure group says it’s time to over­haul the rail network be­cause pas­sen­gers have suf­fered too long - and this is what read­ers have said on our Face­book page:

■ The whole of the fran­chise sys­tem needs change. Should go back to LMS, GNER, GWR, and South­ern Rail­way.. And not a plethora of com­pa­nies, both Na­tional and lo­cal ser­vices could be in­te­grated to­gether to im­prove ef­fi­ciency and re­li­a­bil­ity with op­er­at­ing ar­eas... Dave Mon­aghan

■ They need to do some­thing with north­ern rail the ser­vices are shock­ing. They are never on time and of­ten can­celled. David McGar­vey

■ It’ll never hap­pen. That would in­volve money. North­ern have been un­der-per­form­ing for­ever; 3 prime min­is­ters have said they’re go­ing to do some­thing, and noth­ing has been done. El­lis Smith
