Stopping the trains

It is really good news for the area that all my campaigning for better rail services from Lockerbie has paid off. From May next year TransPennine will double the number of trains stopping at Lockerbie and, for the first time, constituents will be able to commute by rail to Edinburgh or Glasgow, arriving there before 9am.

My thanks to the hundreds who signed our petition calling for improvements, and with their support I hope that we can hopefully get further improvements, especially with late evening trains.
