Rail service 'more than adequate,' claims retired statistician

John Newton, who opposes a railway to St Andrews, described the service as ‘perfectly adeqaute’, contradicting claims that the rolling-stock was old and that trains were overcrowded.

It’s good to know that the present arrangement suits Mr Newton’s needs. However, judging by the increasing number of cars coming into St Andrews, I fear that he is in a minority. And, judging by the large proportion of rail passengers at Leuchars who walk smartly past the bus-stop to the car-park, it would appear that most of them do not think that the bus service is good enough either.
