Rail omission

Have your say

Among the many inducements cited as the basis for awarding Abellio the ScotRail franchise conspicuously absent is any intention to extend rail services to major centres of population presently unserved (your reports, 9 October).

All Abellio has to offer bypasses the 45,000-plus residents of Levenmouth and the East Neuk as a five-mile stretch of branchline between Leven and Thornton remains mothballed under Network Rail’s control.
