The great Bedford rail betrayal

The great Bedford rail betrayal

The East Midlands Railway consultation is out and it confirms Bedford commuters' and leisure travellers worst fears:

  • Totally remove Bedford from the Intercity map
  • No Direct links north beyond Kettering and Corby (due to Conservative imposed cuts to direct north bound trains)
  • Slower commuter style trains to London in place of today's intercity services from as fast as 35 minutes to 41 minutes

We, the undersigned, call for the full restoration of our northern connection, and for faster trains into London.
