Rail Survey by FoBLL & GRaB

This is a survey on behalf of the Friends Of The Brigg & Lincoln Lines rail group ( FoBLL), who work in partnership with the Gainsborough Rail and Bus users group ( GRaB ), and is for any customers that travel on the Sheffield - Lincoln or Sheffield to Cleethorpes via Brigg lines, or interchange at either Retford Low Level or Worksop stations.

The following Stations under this remit are : Sheffield Midland, Darnall, Woodhouse, Kiveton Bridge, Kiveton Park, Shireoaks, Worksop, Retford Low Level, Gainsborough Central, Kirton In Lindsey, Brigg, Barnetby, Haborough, Grimsby Town, Cleethorpes / Gainsborough Lea Road, Saxilby & Lincoln Central.

You are under no obligation to answer any of the questions. The data from this survey will be used to record passenger flows and issues that are brought to our attention and will be communicated to train operating companies, councils and other public bodies.

5. We are working in partnership with Northern Rail to restore a six days a week service on the Sheffield  to Cleethorpes via Brigg Line, and a morning and evening peak service to/from Gainsborough Central. 

These services would call at Sheffield, Darnall, Woodhouse, Kiveton Bridge, Kiveton Park, Shireoaks, Worksop, Retford, Gainsborough Central, Kirton In Lindsey, Brigg, Barnetby, Haborough, Grimsby Town and Cleethorpes.

The last weekday services ran in October 1993, Would you support such a service?

If so how often would you use the train ?
6. Three trains run each way on the Sheffield Midland to Cleethorpes via Brigg service but only on Saturdays. Is this frequency of trains satisfactory? If not indicate which option would suit you better.
7. Network Rail signal boxes are closed between Sheffield and Kiveton Park until 13.30. This means on a Sunday no trains run during the mornings on the Sheffield to Lincoln Line.

Would you use a Sunday morning train?
8. Northern Rail services on the Sheffield  to Lincoln service run hourly. Is this frequency of trains satisfactory?
9. At present the Lincoln Central - Sheffield  Northern Rail services continue to either Doncaster, Adwick or Scunthorpe, we suggest that the route could be changed to connect with the Leeds semi-fast service thus giving a Leeds - Wakefield Kirkgate - Barnsley - Meadowhall - Sheffield  - Lincoln Central service, connecting West with East.

Would you support this idea ?
10. Would you use a semi-fast service calling at Sheffield , Worksop, Retford, Gainsborough (Lea Road), Saxilby, and Lincoln? If so, how frequently would you use it?
11. How do you rate the facilities at the station you use most on the Sheffield to Lincoln/Cleethorpes Lines ?
12. Do you feel you get value for money from your train ticket ?
13. Did you know that Northern Rail offer a Duo Ticket (two adults, second adult half price) for passengers travelling from all stations on the Sheffield  to Lincoln service and for passengers travelling from Shireoaks to Cleethorpes on the Brigg Line service ?
