    New Station proposals Derbyshire

    As already noted, you have to consider whatever long term housing plans/demand there is in the areas. Just because they dont serve anything now, 20 years may be different.

    December 2022 Timetable Changes

    Big catchment area for Stafford. 78 minutes non-stop. 105-110 from Wolves to Euston, it will take some of that market.

    Restoring your Railway Fund Update

    8 seconds a mile for 90 over 75, 4 minutes is going to need 30 miles so unless someone is moving Basingstoke you ain't getting that.

    What value do the through lines at Lancaster have?

    If you are coming out of 3 on the up chances are you arent going to get much above 40mph anyway so its moot. Any faster and a new crossover may not have fitted. Anything on the down into 4 or 5 would likely be facing a red so again not a lot of benefit.

    What value do the through lines at Lancaster have?

    The south end was re-modelled in 2013 which allowed down trains into 4 and 5. Up Goods was upgraded to passenger standard and the up crossover out of platform 3 was upgraded from 15 to 40mph.

    What value do the through lines at Lancaster have?

    Its 75mph through the station, and flashing yellows on the approaches. You might get 10-15 seconds on a good day. Lots of money and disruption for naff all really. Lancaster got remodelled to an extent within the last 8-9 years anyway.

    Noted a comment about digital signalling, you won't be seeing ETCS up there anytime soon.
