Which lost a 4 car Voyager every 2 hours and TPE were expected to plug that gap using 185s.Nothing like as many as the doubled up Manchester Airport - Preston/Lancaster services
It's be like making Manchester-Hull 2 hourly and then commenting on there being more doubled up services.
And the west side has only 142s which is inferior to a combination of 144s and 142s.A three coach 144 (like under half of the 144s are) only has (roughly) the same capacity as a two coach Sprinter, due to the short Pacer coaches.
There are plenty doubled up Pacers "west" side, but very few on the "east" side.
I said about inferior rolling stock on the west side and you came back with capacity in your response.
Statistically the North West has more passengers than Yorkshire and Yorkshire has more passengers than the North East. So if you're saying the North West has more carriages than Yorkshire then it means Northern (and TPE) have got one thing right.
