    Blackpool trams

    Probably easier for Fleetwood /Cleveleys passengers travel to Poulton Station! (Time BJ got the railway back open!!) It mainly serves tourists. Bispham to Pleasure Beach is the busiest section - Promenade Hotels. (Like a ghost town atm) BPN - will not be an easy branch to run! Luggage etc...

    Future of the Blackpool South line

    Have to agree Going to work - also Manchester is in the 'search for a job area!' Have also used service to St Annes - £2,30 return with railcard is half the price of a bus, and faster.

    Future of the Blackpool South line

    If a bi-directional dynamic passing loop is installed between St Annes and Lytham, Ansdell & Fairhaven could have 1 tph in each direction - therefore not requiring any additional platforms. Blackpool is a very long development along the seafront etc, there is a fair distance between the 2...

    Northern 10p Tickets

    Could not get Blackpool to Barrow (BIF), booked Preston to Barrow, could not get Blackpool to Preston, bought Blackpool to Liverpool instead. Would that be ok just thinking about Advance ticket restrictions?

    Blackpool Trams Extension to North station

    There are a lot of visitors using the South Fylde line to reach their accommodation in South Shore, Lytham St Annes. Also trains are rammed with passengers going to Blackpool Pleasure Beach, which has its own station. Although atm there is only 1 tph it is far easier to catch a South Fylde...

    Blackpool Trams Extension to North station

    Nice picture, thank you. Makes me smile every time I pass it! The South Fylde line is far from useless. (Except present timetable/ Arriva North - Northern rail /DFT/ failings which hopefully will be sorted soon!) Converting it to a tramway would be a retrograde step - only needs a dynamic...

    Blackpool Trams Extension to North station

    Very sad -Not a nice Christmas present for the staff. Sounds so wasteful demolishing a very large building and car park for a tram terminus, and for such a short spur. Nice hotel in Blackpool without a sea view? Lol!

    Any news on proposals to build an alternative route between Exeter & Plymouth?

    Thanks for that is there an estimate for the whole scheme? (Presumably cheaper than the DAL tunnels)

    Any news on proposals to build an alternative route between Exeter & Plymouth?

    The improvements to the GWR main line, are between Parsons Tunnel and the River Teign. The part that got washed away (Dawlish) is not included? Voyagers will still be stopped at high water when spray is likely. Debris etc in a storm will still stop the trains, and damage to Dawlish station will...

    Any news on proposals to build an alternative route between Exeter & Plymouth?

    Many thanks for that, certainly make a difference to the foreshore there!! Looking for some 'gains' eg Will they be able to raise the speed restriction on that section?

    Any news on proposals to build an alternative route between Exeter & Plymouth?

    Very disappointed with this low priority given to Devon & Cornwall, even though most MP's are conservative! With sea levels rising, spending money putting the main line further out to sea does not make sense imo, I assume they will also raise the height of this line! With all the problems and...
