/ Trains between Scotland & London & return
"The government's recent objective is to spend £80 billion on HS2 between London and Birmingham to save 30 mins. We now hear that to achieve this, train services from Scotland, via Penrith [doesn't that also mean via Carlisle & Glasgow & Edinburgh?] will be reduced from 18 trains per day to 8 & they will go via Manchester & add 1 hour to the journey" I may phone the writer and ask where he got these plans from. (Sorry, bad grammar, should be "from where did he get these plans.)
"...according to a previously unpublicised document on the HS2 website..."
In the North West, HS2 will not serve Lancaster, Oxenholme, Penrith or Carlisle, leaving them reliant on a slowed-down service on the old line. Lancaster’s direct London service will be cut from 18 trains a day to eight – all of which will go via Manchester, adding about an hour to the journey.
