Save our night trains

filed on: 29.09.2014 (29th Sep 2014)

night train Basel Copenhagen I have in the past on this newslog bemoaned the gradual passing of night trains in Europe. I have now come across a petition seeking to do something about it. The petition is specifically concerned with the Basel to Copenhagen train, but it is worth supporting, also to break a lance against this tragic development in general. With billions being spent on railways, and talk of major rail corridors connecting Europe's capitals, it seems absurd that in reality longer-distance and international travel is being discouraged.

The initiators of the petition hope to bring this matter to the attention of the Danish parliament, and are seeking 10,000 signatures for this. With almost 6,000 signatories, the goal is within realistic grasp. So please support on: www.petitions24.com/a/91939.

Guardian night train article An article on the topic of vanishing night services has recently been published by The Guardian here.
