'No trains' at Kenilworth's new railway station 'until 2018' [BBC News]





Date: 05/12/2017

A town's fifty-year wait for a railway station continues amid a row over when trains can run through it. The county council says the site in Kenilworth, Warwickshire, is complete but has been told by the Department for Transport (DfT) that neither trains nor drivers can be supplied until February. The authority said it was 'beyond disappointing'. The government department said the council was to blame for delays.
