Rail improvements won’t be overnight
Dear Sir, — The letters from Fiona Bruce and Mr Hulme both touch on familiar problems.
However, those that think Northern Rail will improve overnight are mistaken as all the outstanding Network Rail improvements/ maintenance will still take months, if not years, to rectify and as all the new trains are being delivered late and there have been problems with them.
You cannot train staff on trains that don’t exist or don’t work “out of the box”, although this should improve relatively quickly.
