10 April 2009: Keep your eyes peeled for an unusual train sighting. Rail Minister Lord Adonis is about to begin a six-day train trip around the country to see the railways at first hand – ending up in York on the weekend (according to The Times).
It’s unusual for a minister to do such a thing so we applaud Lord Adonis. His trip is a great opportunity for you to let him know how you think the railways could be improved! You could hop on his carriage and have a chat or welcome him in York next week. If, like me, you can’t join Lord Adonis on the train, drop him an email. He’ll be receving emails during his journey.
I’m going to tell Lord Adonis that we don’t want the highest train fares in Europe. He should cut train fares so that more people can afford to go green by taking the train. The Government could pay for fare cuts by taxing the fuel on domestic flights.
