Airport Rail Link

Underground trains may soon run on the Harrogate Line (cc) Tom Page

The Yorkshire Evening Post is reporting that the Harrogate Chamber of Commerce has written to the Minister for Railways to ask for an agreement in principal to the development of a new railway station new the airport, and the operation of a bus connection service to the terminal building.

The plan is significantly less than was hoped for, a full rail link from the Harrogate line to the Wharfedale line via the airport. The plan also recommends using old 3rd rail London Overground trains, this would represent a significant cost barrier. The DfT have stated their objection to new 3rd rail development however. There are alternative electrification schemes which would be suitable for the Harrogate Line.
