Transpennine Express

Surprised, but we don't seem to have a Transpennine Express thread!

Anyhow, much like LNER, TPE are consulting on their proposed timetable changes. 

From a North East perspective, the proposals would include an hourly service to/from Chester-le-Street, as oppose to the infrequent timetable at present, but Northallerton seem to lose the half hourly service, replaced by a train every two hours.

Also there will be no trains north of Newcastle and direct train to the airport from Newcastle, quite big cuts to allow LNER and the open operator more access on the Edinburgh to London parts
