Report of theatrical success

Text of Press Release:

Theatregoers attending the St Andrews Play Club's production of the 'Titfield Thunderbolt' last week had the opportunity to learn about another rail enterprise. The Starlink (St Andrews Rail Link) campaign had a small display in the foyer, which included a map of the initial route proposals from Corus Rail Infrastructure Services.

Convenor Jane Ann Liston said, 'With the play being about a community fighting to keep its rail service, it was an ideal opportunity for the Starlink campaign to raise awareness of developments in the campaign to restore trains to St Andrews, and particularly of the ongoing feasibility study. Considerable interest was displayed by the audience members who generously donated a total of £45 towards funding the remainder of the study, which is expected to be completed by the end of the year.'


It should be noted that no-one made any complaint about the proposed routes on the map. There was of course a preference for the option which included both southbound and northbound travel.
