    Hello J Aspinall

    It would help Northern Rail if you told them which trains you were on that were filling the trains with diesel fumes. This would allow them to identify problem units.

    With regards to replacement of trains, my advice would be that you contact your MP with your concerns. All rolling stock purchases need to be signed off by the government, so your MP is best placed to lobby for additional and newer stock for Northern Rail. Your ulterior motive is to get them to attend and speak about rolling stock issues in the north.

    Our sister website Writetothem is designed to make this really easy

    Kind regards
