For years we’ve had an aspiration of seeing the Mid Cheshire Sunday service running hourly, in fact more or less the same as the Saturday service, though probably with a slightly later start and a slightly earlier finish. Here’s our aspirations from 2010.
Well it’s happening, though for one day only – Mid Cheshire – Sunday 20 May 2012
Northern are one of the sponsors of the Spellbound Forest event in Delamere Forest that Sunday. And they’ve kindly rescheduled services and added extra resources to give the line an hourly service that day.
Now here’s the challenge!
How about we all try to use the service that day to go somewhere, even if only a short trip like Mobberley to Knutsford, Hale to Stockport or Chester to Delamere. All the income that day is accounted for in LENNON (nothing to do with The Beatles! – Latest Earnings Networked Nationally Over Night) and so by the following day Northern (and others, i.e. DfT and TfGM) will see the increase in takings over to the normal two-hourly service.
We get to hear overall statistics afterwards, though not the detail. We’ll let you know what we hear about tickets sold and earnings for Sunday 20 May.
