Major rail improvement plans to be presented to councillors – The Scarborough News
Councillors are to be told that major improvements are on the drawing board for rail lines in North Yorkshire.
“Over the next two years railways across the region will be transformed”, said Graham North, North Yorkshire County Council’s transport development officer, in a report to the authority’s Thirsk and Malton area committee.
Transpennine have now introduced an early morning train from Scarborough to York, enabling passengers to reach London by 9 am.
A late night train from Scarborough is now running until after 10.30 pm to enable people to visit theatres and night spots in the resort.
Services between Scarborough and York will be stepped up from hourly to half hourly from December next year by Arriva Rail North. Major rail improvement plans to be presented to councillors – The Scarborough News
