A Happy New Year to National Express East Coast passengers as the company slashes the number of restaurant car services.
This from the Yorkshire Post:
"Just two morning southbound trains and a handful of evening services from London will continue to host restaurant cars. Otherwise first-class ticket holders will be able to buy fish pie or crayfish and chorizo risotto to eat at their seats."
This, of course, despite promises from Richard Bowker that traditional railway dining would be safe in his hands.
If you're broke you've got to reduce costs and maximise revenue!
The Fact Compiler suspects the fury over the reduction in restaurant cars will be as nothing compared to that when NXEC starts charging for seat reservations!
