Hi Richard


Please feel free to use the following quote, attributable either to me or to a university spokesman:

“Any announcement of increased or improved rail services to and from Lincoln is good news for us and for our students.


“Even in this age of near-universal car use the train is still the number one mode of transport for students travelling long distances. This is particularly true for students living in our on-campus accommodation where cars are not permitted during term time.


“The better the rail service into and out of Lincoln, the better we are able to promote our university campus and attract the students we need.”
