From that throbbing and reliable organ, the Shropshire Star (Google keeps it popping up for me), TuS can report dramatic good news about Scotland’s rail service:
On April 25, 94.4% of ScotRail services met the rail industry standard public performance measure. Across Scotland, 89.9% of the operator’s trains met the rail industry standard public performance measure (PPM). This means they arrived at their destination within four minutes and 59 seconds of their timetabled arrival time having called at all scheduled stations.
Having recently travelled across England, by Virgin and Chiltern, late, wildly overcrowded and choking from badly maintained diesel engines in grubby stations, I can understand why the Shropshire Star is so keen to draw attention to ScotRail.
