LETTER : No-stop train One-way line

I AM NOT surprised at North London Railways' attempt to run its Gospel Oak to Barking line slightly less inefficiently by missing out all the station stops ("True stories from the Great Railway Disaster", 9 July). This is after all the line with an evening service reduced to customer-unfriendly hourly intervals, on which nobody collects any fares and whose last eastbound train leaves before 10pm so it can get back to the depot (never mind that people might need to travel after that time). Having thus driven away most of the evening service's potential users and not collected money from those who do use it, the company then refuses to improve it on the grounds that it doesn't bring in sufficient revenue.
