A ray of hope or another false dawn for commuters on the Cambridge line? #uktrains #yam #in

Excellent speech from Sir Alan Haselhurst pointing out the many deficiencies in the rail transport infrastructure between London and Cambridge (and stations in between) – including Stansted Express. I’m one of the many long-suffering commuters on this route that have seen a year on year detioration in the service, matched only by the year on year inflation-busting price rises.

I’m less encourage by the response from Theresa Villiers (Minister of State Rail and Aviation) which sounds more like tinkering with the current system rather than getting to the root of the problems – not enough track or carriage capacity.

I live in hope, but will probably be well past retirement before any improvement to the service is realised! Glad at least that the debate is being aired.

I’m a life-long learner with an insatiable curiosity about life. I love travel, good food, and good company. I’m happy to share what I know with others….even the interesting stuff! My outlook on life is pretty well captured in this quote from a book about the legend of King Arthur: “The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.” ― T.H. White, The Once and Future King So much to learn, so little time!
