Where we are and where we will be

Where we are and where we will be
The idea of Edinburgh is a combination of place, soul and symbolic leadership of a nation

Another one bites the dust!

So the alleged "resurrection" of Edinburgh's south suburban line, a victim of "Beeching" is a false alarm and sadly, yet another SNP/Libdem broken promise, (see here and here for respective manifestos).

The Libdems were the most explicit in their promise to, and I quote, " we will produce during summer 2007 a business case for the reintroduction of the Edinburgh South Suburb line for passenger services. We would work with the private sector to attract developer contributions to the reopening of stations without softening development control standards."

I make that 3 broken promises; no business case, no private sector work and its long past summer 2007....
