A working curry with Northern Rail and our MP at Corbridge
If you check out Guy Opperman MP's facebook or his blog http://guyopperman.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/good-news-on-trains.html you will see that he has taken the initiative to get 15 people around a table to discuss the future of train services. The Northern management team sent senior representatives who live in Skipton, Malton and Harrogate so you can judge they thought it important to be in Corbridge until a last train which would not get them home. Cross your fingers you will hear a lot more beginning to flow from this encounter. Daraz and his team at the Valley Restaurant in the old station building (they bring in about 10,000 folk a year by train) were impeccable in every way.
