Re: And another one bites the dust
A similar thing happened when all the railways were closed in the 60's. Locals complained and campaigned but had never used the trains, then the last trains to run were packed.
Mind you of all the mistakes Dr. Beeching made, one of most nonsensical was to declare that people would use their cars to drive to the nearest main line station and then use the train. Of course no one did this they used their cars for the whole journey.
