To the editor,
Re: Rail model can work, Letters, Jan. 2.
If the train to Victoria ran every hour in both directions, during daylight hours, I would certainly be a customer. But having one train per day running north in the morning and south in the evening means anyone from Nanaimo, who wants to spend a day in Victoria, has to spend two nights in a hotel in Victoria. You are not going to get many takers for such a service.
The reason European train systems are so successful is they run on comprehensive schedules. So either do it right or don’t bother doing it at all.
