SOME EUROSTAR NEWS

AND WE HAVE BEEN NOTICED IN THE PRESS !!
Our letter to the New European titled “Back on the Rails” was published on 13th February. We were able to explain the outcome of our January meetings in Brussels and publicise the planned October “Back-on-track” conference – also in Brussels.
One of our members also had a letter published in the Financial Times on the same day titled “Couchettes may be key to making sleeper affordable”. He made several suggestions as to how Night Train services could be made more attractive for the leisure and tourist markets.
