So if you think it's not good enough, please suggest what else the rail industry could do.Sheffield to Manchester is very busy.
Sheffield loses both fast services and has to carry the passengers on the stopper path between Huddersfield and Manchester.
Sheffield has no satisfactory road alternative.
Recent history proved that the railway was unprepared for the dam closures and failed to provide anything for nearly two weeks.
If the solutions are to be going via Leeds(dam advice) going via Derby and changing twice or replacing three trains with one slow then I do not think enough consideration has been given to users.
Hulley's X57 is looking a good option.
