We know lengthy line closures can be a real inconvenience for customers" [David Simpson, ScotRail service delivery director]

It's pretty clear why he's a Scotrail director.

Do we honestly think an improved rail service will be a sudden boon for ABZ? It does virtually zero for PIK…

It helped drive PIK to it's highest ever passenger numbers when Ryanair and PIK partenered with Scotrail. It does wonders for MAN and LGW, it seems bizarre to pretend that airport to railway connections won't have any impact at all.....

So you're saying if you took away the MAN/LGW rail links, there'd be a significant drop in traffic? I don't buy that.. i'd say the vast majority of people using the train would just switch to an alternative form of transport and still use the same airport.

Trains make it easier - but without them it wouldn't stop people travelling.
