‘We want more trains and we want bigger trains!’

That is the message from Rasen Mail readers in response to an appeal by Lincolnshire County Council for views on local train services.

Market Rasen resident Ian Oliver said he regularly travelled to Lincoln but said the service needed improvement and investment.

He said: “We need more trains and it would be an added bonus if there were more seats. I often have to stand on journeys and there’s never an apology.”

Emma Jacobson said she and her friends – who are all students – would welcome a later return train from Lincoln.

She added: “It can be a problem, especially if you have to stay in Lincoln. We need a late train – and not just on a Friday and Saturday.”
