The Hexham Courant reports success in the pilot project to stop late night drinkers and problem causers on the 7.25 & 9.18 Evening trains from Newcastle to Carlisle on Fridays and Saturdays. The Tyne valley rail users group and I have campaigned at length on this issue details here: http://www.hexhamcourant.co.uk/news/2.2978/police-stamp-out-drunks-on-tyne-valley-trains-1.1123842
I read in the paper this week that there is a meeting at Hexham Community Centre on Gilesgate on Tuesday at 7.15 pm, organised by the TVRUG and the Hexham Community Partnership.
This campaign started after my meeting earlier in the year with Northern and the British Transport Police after extensive complaints by locals and user group members. Delighted it is being sorted.
