NEWS

As we feared, the Franchising Director has decided to withdraw the hourly express trains from Liverpool, Manchester and probably Sheffield to Norwich from December 2021. Replacement services will link Nottingham, Peterborough, Ely, Thetford and Norwich. Most of their passengers will probably be students, migrant workers, day-trippers and people visiting friends and relatives. But they should be capable of attracting business and professional travel if they are highly reliable and if journey times stay below 160 minutes. The specification seems to rule out any nasty service gaps at the normal conference, interview and meeting times.

GOING ALL THE WAY


Our July newsletter carries both our responses to the Birmingham route (Cross Country) franchise consultation document and the message we sent to the three bidders for the Nottingham-Norwich (East Midlands) franchise. It confirms the ability of passengers with reduced mobility joining trains at Thetford platform 1 to buy tickets on the train and mentions a missed connection to Great Yarmouth on a race day.

Membership of Peterborough-Ely-Norwich Rail Users costs 3 from now until the end of 2019. Cheques should be made payable to "PETERBOROUGH-ELY-NORWICH RAIL USERS" and sent to: PENRUG, Thistledew, Fen Street, Old Buckenham, Attleborough, Norfolk, NR17 1NW.
