What do pas­sen­gers think of the costs and de­lays on the line? We went to Falkirk High sta­tion to ask

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - NEWS -

Cal­lum Cowan, 21 I get the train to work and it de­pends what time of day but on the way back there are only three car­riages and it can be quite bad. Lau­ren McKenna, 16 I go to Ed­in­burgh to visit my par­ents. I quite en­joy it and I’ve not ex­pe­ri­enced de­lays. I know it hap­pens to some peo­ple. Paul Mont­gomery, 23 “When you’re on the train it’s okay but the ser­vice’s time keep­ing is ter­ri­ble. They’re al­ways late and de­layed.” Do­minic West, 58 Com­pared to Lon­don the trains here are spot­less, well run, and peo­ple are re­ally friendly. I wish we had this sort of ser­vice in Lon­don.

Claire Wad­dle, 45 To­day we are go­ing to Ed­in­burgh then go­ing to Manch­ester. Last week we were on a hen do and when we were com­ing back they had to put a bus on, there were no trains. So that was a pain. Hazel Bankier, 45 The train is busy. It’s re­ally, re­ally busy. If you’re go­ing through in the evening you of­ten don’t get a seat. They’re not late enough com­ing back ei­ther. The last train is from Glas­gow is at 11.30pm. Caitlin An­der­son, 26 Get­ting a seat re­ally de­pends be­cause there are quite a lot of car­riages but some­times com­ing back from Hay­mar­ket there are only two car­riages so there’s not a lot of spaces. It’s a lot busier. Romy Neill, 21 I get the train to uni quite a lot. I live in Air­drie and it’s un­re­li­able some­times. They’re late quite a lot. A lot of the car­riages have been cut back down to three so at peak times it can get pretty busy.
