Todays services are not calling at Brighouse, Mirfield and Pontefract. The 1022 from BDI appears to be starting at Halifax on time and taking reverse route to Bradford and then onto Wakefield Kirkgate. Anyone know what's going on?
Does this rail service actually make any money?
I got the 12.15 from Halifax to Doncaster (and London) today, and it was almost empty.
I got off at Doncaster and the train going the other way was just pulling in and was also almost empty.
Lovely as it was (and what a contrast to the other grossly overcrowded CrossCountry and Northern Rail services I rode this weekend) I can't help wondering where the profit comes in?
The profit takes time, which was seen with the Sunderland service. For many years it was making a loss until it started bedding in, and IIRC it does make a profit now.
