Cost, maybe? aren't all the proposals in the list either services using existing metal or stations on existing metal? hence why I'm wondering about the Westcountry stations & if there's enough existing stock to extend commuter services. Mind you where's the existing stock for all the other proposals too...Have just seen this list and am both surprised and dismayed not to see Uckfield-Lewes/Brighton on it. I'm fairly certain that the BML2 group would have submitted a proposal (again). I fear this will put the kibosh on reopening this link for good now.
Also surprised not to see Bere Alston-Tavistock or as someone else mentioned, Crediton-Okehampton - which has already seen successful reintroduction of summer weekend services. Maybe because there are already firm plans in place?
Anyone know if there's a way of viewing all the submissions?
