Letter: Air and Rail

Sir: The main Scottish airports have or could soon have rail links, contrary to Simon Calder's suggestion (Time Off, 24 January).

Dyce, just north of Aberdeen, was reopened for the airport, though restoration of the "subbies", Aberdeen's lost local trains, would improve matters.

Glasgow's airport link was hampered by the notorious politics of Paisley, but is now being prepared by Strathclyde Passenger Transport and would link in with the city's Crossrail plan.

An airport station on the Edinburgh-Fife line has been long suggested and may come when the city's traffic restraint policies are matched by rail development.
