'Traffic jams and bottlenecks' - mention in new book

A new book reviewed in The Courier mentions the loss of rail services to St Andrews.

Scotland's Lost Branch Lines by David Spaven is published by Birlinn.

The piece, by Neil Drysdale, is set in the context of the 150th Open Championship to be played over the Old Course in July, and comparing the rail access to Carnoustie with the lack of it to St Andrews.

It concludes with feeling, '
Just imagine if there were still regular trains every day venturing from different parts of Fife to St Andrews to accommodate Open spectators in July.

But you can’t. Instead, the roads will be packed and the traffic jams and bottlenecks will present anything but a fairway to heaven!'
I think many who have seen the effect of the Open on St Andrews in previous years will agree.
