More Train Cancellations On Scarborough TPE Services

More Train Cancellations On Scarborough TPE Services

Published by Karen Liu at 10:34am 23rd December 2019.

Train users on the Yorkshire Coast are facing yet more disruption today.

TransPennine Express services to and from Scarborough have been cancelled over the past few days, in the run-up to Christmas and New Year.

It has resulted in commuters expressing their frustrations yet again on social media.

Leo Goodwin, Managing Director for TransPennine Express said:

“I am really sorry for the disruption to our customers journeys.  

I know what a busy time it is with people travelling during the festive period. 

We have had a number of issues to contend with; crew training caused by the late delivery of some of our new trains, a maintenance backlog and the implementation of a temporary timetable along one of our routes.

This has unfortunately had a knock on affect to other services.  

We are working really hard to sort this for our customers and as we introduce more new trains we should see an improvement to people’s journeys.”

The long overdue statement from the Managing Director is pretty much saying that there is not going to be an improvement any time soon. Why don't they just give it up as a bad job and hand the francshise back to the government as other rail operating companies have done.
