    Edinburgh tram system

    Just a guess, but probably because the current Scottish Executive wouldnt fund the tram lines on the bridge, and other associated tram lines that would be needed. And I doubt local councils and private investors could fund it alone The current Scotish Executive will only fund what Labour/Lib...

    Victoria Coach Station takeover

    Victoria is run by TfL isn't it? I assume they own London Victoria Coach Station Ltd

    Edinburgh tram system

    As far as I know the SNP wanted to scrap it, but then Labour, the Lib Dems and Conservatives would have passed a no confidence vote in the SNP government, and possibly caused new elections. So the SNP had to back down and allow the tram scheme to go ahead. But they wont fund any cost overruns or...

    Tee-side Airport, any point?

    Low Cost flights are available from Newcastle to all destinations served from Teeside/Durham Tees Valley by low cost airlines except Warsaw. Of course that doesn't mean flights to some destinations wouldn't be cheaper from Teeside than Newcastle Newcastle is a base for Easyjet and Jet 2, with...

    Tee-side Airport, any point?

    Arent those numbers not 100% accurate because 'all stations' tickets to a particular town are attributed to only one station (such as in Dorchester or Thorne)

    More 66's

    Didnt DRS want to use te 66/8 range, but couldn't because they clashed with the numbers of some carriages in either EMU's or DMU's?

    where are these 442's going?

    But I imagine the FGW service in particular are used by more than just local passengers. Don't the DfT realise this? Also do SWT ever send an EMU to Brighton on the Basingstoke services?

    where are these 442's going?
