I know the government has pretty much knocked electrification off the agenda but with the recent announcement that the Midland Main Line's wires will be extended to Market Harborough purely to connect with a substation, I can't help thinking with the gradual introduction of bi-modes, it would be better to get the wires to Leicester as more trains stop there and there are more tracks. Can you imagine the number of hold-ups if loads more trains stopped at Market Harborough just to do the pantographs? Same goes on the Reading-Taunton. How many trains from Penzance and Paignton called at Newbury before electrification? I seem to remember it was pretty few whereas loads more called at Taunton. Come on DfT, it's only logical. Get those wires to Leicester and Taunton then you can get back to HS2.
