Yesterday evening's meeting was not so dominated by Brexit as I expected, though some unexpected benefits of EU funding were revealed. Rather, the disregard for rail users by some sections of train operating companies dominated discussion. In particular, concern was expressed about the lack of information given out to passengers, especially on interruptions to service. The imminent closure of the Severn Tunnel for a scheduled six weeks' work on electrification this autumn is a particular worry.
