Lakes Line passengers ‘treated like cattle’ – BBC News

Rail passengers on a rural line in Cumbria are being treated “like cattle”, according to a campaign group.

The Lakes Line Rail User Group (LLRUG) said people were regularly crammed into two-carriage trains, with more than 100 standing in corridors on one of the services over the weekend.

It has written to operator Northern, warning that more carriages are needed during the peak tourist season.

Northern said it was doing all it could to improve services.

Volunteers from the LLRUG act as “welcomers” who travel on trains offering advice on services and places of interest to passengers, who are mainly tourists during the summer. Lakes Line passengers ‘treated like cattle’ – BBC News
