Story at Berwick
RAGES has long been pressing for the re-introduction of the local service from Edinburgh to Berwick with the possible re-opening of stations at East Linton and Reston.
The main campaign story can be read at this link.
Berwick will be the southern "end of the line" for the local service.
RAGES are delighted to announce that after all
their meetings with Virgin Trains East Coast to negotiate additional
calls for Dunbar and Berwick, two totally new services have been
introduced. These are:
Saturdays only 20:00 Edinburgh to Newcastle, calling at Dunbar 20:20, Berwick 20:45, Alnmouth 21:06, Morpeth 21:26 and Newcastle 21:43 and
Sundays only 08:45 Newcastle to Edinburgh, calling at Morpeth 09:00, Alnmouth 09:16, Berwick 09:40, Dunbar 10:04 and Edinburgh 10:28.
Neither of these two new services is yet shown on the new Winter Timetables published by Virgin Trains East Coast or ScotRail. However, they are shown on line on National Rail Enquiries.
RAGES are grateful for these new services and will continue discussions with Virgin Trains East Coast to have a mid-morning Edinburgh to King's Cross train call at Dunbar and a mid-morning to noon King's Cross departure service call at Dunbar.
