Taken for a ride; LETTERS.
Since privatisation, train companies can charge whatever they please. On a local level, why is it that even at peak times the trains from Shirley to Snow Hill have only three carriages? The only passengers assured of a seat are those who board the train at Shirley or Hall Green. Those trying to board at Spring Road or Tyseley are lucky to get on and standing passengers have to breathe in deeply.
Why can't the company put two or three more carriages on at peak times and uncouple them at 9am? JAMES BENTON, Hall Green, Birmingham
