Glasgow Central railway station, needs more LNER services!

Glasgow Central railway station is the busiest in Scotland. But it happens to be, the one I use the least! Mainly due to fast, you can’t get many direct train to it from Peterborough any more. Like you could under the GNER days! Which is one, of the main reasons, I started mainly driving to/from Scotland and stopped using the train!

LNER, is doing a way better job than both National Express East Coast and Virgin Trains East Coast, ever did! But, I still would rate GNER has the best railway franchise the UK ever had!
