    Unfortunately we don’t live in the area, but our rail group, The Independent Brigg Line Rail Group, fully supports any improvements for the community of Pilning.

    We are absolutely shocked and appalled that a major project came along like electrification and made the facilities at their station a lot worse.

    It is disgraceful the way they have been left with just one working platform.

    There is no excuse whatsoever under the present circumstances for the train operator to at least put some platform lights up, so trains can at least call early morning and late in the evening.

    Our Brigg Line, which used to be the main line between Sheffield and Cleethorpes also used to have a Saturday only service for 30 years.

    This was changed to a one round trip Monday to Friday service last May.

    We hope FoSBR fully support Pilning and their need to be brought out of this horrendous situation.
