TRAIN OF THOUGHT
How many passengers do you think use Brigg railway station?
Official figures from the Office of Rail Regulation – available on the internet – show 665 “entries and exits” by passengers in 2007/8, which works out at about 13 a week. Or, to put things into true perspective, 13 a day (as our rail link only receives trains on a Saturday). Brigg gets six trains – three in each direction between Sheffield and Cleethorpes – so that’s an average of just over two per train.
