star this property answer text <p>The latest National Rail Passenger Survey (NRPS) results (Autumn 2018) found that 8 in 10 journeys were rated as satisfactory overall at the national level, with fewer than one in 10 rated as unsatisfactory. Satisfaction as measured by the NRPS has generally remained stable over the last 10 years.</p><p> </p><p>The fieldwork for the Autumn 2018 NRPS was the first since the introduction of the new timetable in May 2018 and the subsequent period of network disruption, which is likely to have had an impact on the results for some Train Operating Companies (TOCs).</p><p> </p><p>In addition, a number of TOCs were affected by industrial action throughout 2018, including South Western Railway and Northern. Parts of the country (particularly Scotland) were affected by Storm Ali during September and October which closed a large number of stations in Scotland.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>There are currently no plans to further extend electrification on the Midland Main Line (MML), beyond those works planned by the MML enhancements programme and HS2 Phase 2b. The Department for Transport has taken the decision to deliver new bi-mode trains for MML intercity services. Together with significant infrastructure investment along the route, for example the track and signalling upgrade at Derby station which was completed last year, this will mean that passengers will benefit from faster journeys, and from more seats and better quality trains with as little disruption to passengers as possible.</p> more like this
