Transport Secretary Alistair Darling warned that "we can't be in the business of carting fresh air around the country" as he launched a review of rural rail services.
The Community Rail Development Strategy, drawn up by the Strategic Rail Authority (SRA), aims to secure the future of the lines by cutting costs and upping usage through community involvement and marketing. The scheme involves seven lines - two in Yorkshire, two in Cornwall, one in Hertfordshire, one in Devon and one in Lincolnshire - but this could eventually be extended to 56 lines. Liberal Democrat transport spokesman John Thurso was cautious about the scheme. He said: "Where the rail network is enhanced by the initiative, it is indeed welcome but if it is simply a method of quick fix cost-costing by the back door, it should be resisted."
