Do you remember the following item that we posted just over a couple of months ago?
When South Western Railway took over the running of our local train service (it actually took over the whole South West Train franchise) it announced that it would consult about its proposed new timetable. So, a week or so ago, it launched a consultation on-line. You’ll find the consultation page HERE (Sorry, Facebook readers, you may have to go to the Eye’s WordPress blog for this link to work.)
To us, the most relevant part of the consultation is Table 150:
Well, the consultation is nearly over. One of our readers has responded: “For 7 years I travelled from Camberley to Waterloo on the straight through trains and saw the number of people on the platform increase week by week. A great service, but having to change trains in the rush hour, whether Ascot or Ash Vale, and get on a crowded train probably means having to stand for much of the way. Another nail in Camberley’s coffin if they do away with this service.”
The borough council appears to have similar concerns. You’ll find the council’s reply to the consultation HERE.
