Can someone explain to me and the rest of the county, as no doubt everyone can hear it, why the Abellio diesel train has to go out at 1am and then again at 2am, disturbing everyone's sleep?

After all, we have to put up with it every hour of every day anyway.

It now appears we are going to have to suffer this for another nine years, but when are we going to get the nice quiet one which was promised by Abellio?

The one which does not add to the pollution which it would appear the country already suffers from, according to the latest news reports.

I wait in anticipation but will not hold my breath.

I will probably be killed by the pollution first.
