Here’s a newspaper story from August 2006 from my local paper, the Hartlepool Mail. This was a campaign to support the bid for Grand Central Railway to have a direct train link from Hartlepool to London. As you can read in the article, getting to London was often a time-consuming and difficult journey, fraught with problems. Since then, we now have a very good regular service to the capital, and I’m glad that local businesses, including mine, got behind this and helped to bring this service to the town.
