Night Riviera sleeper train sign now

We, the undersigned, are extremely concerned that government plans to cut the vital Night Riviera sleeper train service from London to Penzance.
This train is a vital link to South West England for business and leisure travellers: one whose loss would be felt keenly across the region. It is the only way to get from Cornwall to London before 0900 hours without staying overnight in the capital: and the governments own figures suggest that it is well-used. How can it not be value for money?
We urge you to instruct the Strategic Rail Authority to provide a full and binding commitment to retain and develop this critical service for the good of the people, economy, and transport infrastructure of the South West.
