Initial problem

Can the rolling stock please be updated on this route, the trains condition feel like we are living in a bygone era, I wouldn't be surprised if a steam locomotive was pulling our train next time around.

If you compare these trains to virgin pendolina or cross country trains, then these trains have a lot to live up to.

    Good luck Andrew. I have to say, Northern Rail get a *lot* of comments about their old trains on this site.

    Northern trains on Scunthorpe/Sheffield Route

    We're now into 2012 and with monotonous regularity, fares are increased "to pay for new trains" they say. But not for this route, for a long time to come.

    The state of the "Pacer" railcars beggars description. Northern could at least make some effort to brighten up the interiors and refurbish the seating, and even clean the windows, occasionally?
