New East Coast timetable unveiled

New East Coast timetable unveiled

Fri 22 Jan 2010

The government run East Coast has released a new timetable for services on the East Coast Mainline.

The new timetable, which is called Eureka, has been designed to add more capacity to the network.

Elaine Holt, Chairman of East Coast, said: “Eureka has been a long time in the making – and represents the biggest change on the East Coast Main Line since electrification in 1991 – and we welcome the fact that we’re now closer than ever to this new approach becoming a reality.

“There’s a lot of good news in the pipeline for East Coast customers.”

This good news includes 25 extra services along the line, along with thousands of extra seats for passengers. East Coast are also claiming that journey times will be slashed from many stations along the route.

According to East Coast the name Eureka was given to the new timetable as a way of signifying all of the hard work which had gone into it, along with future plans which the government has to the rail industry in general.
