  1. You are ten years behind the times regarding Ripon.

    A full feasibility study was done in 2005 for reinstating Harrogate-Ripon. BCR was 1.3 including construction and operating costs so Ripon should be well up your list of top 15.
    BCR was too low to continue.

    Planning has been done since 2011 on reinstating Harrogate-Ripon-Northallerton to create a through route from Leeds to the North avoiding congested York. Early estimates give a BCR of 3.5-4.0 including construction and operating costs so please put Ripon where it deserves to be in your list.

    We are searching for funding for an updated benefit/cost analysis to confirm our estimates of BCR for a through route..

    You don’t even has us down as a campaign Group after 27 years of campaigning.

    Watch this space.

    1. Thank you for your contribution. As a single person tracking what is approaching 250 proposals to add railway stations to the rail network via a small website, it can be difficult to monitor every development, particularly as other projects that are further along the delivery process create so much news. 2015 is a big year for rail expansion with three line openings and at least 15 stations joining the network. It’s also been marred by delays of most of the station reopenings. I am aware of the campaign to restore rail services to Ripon and have sadly not had the opportunity to add more details about the recent updates due to personal time constraints. That is something I am hoping to address over the holiday period. I believe you are looking at the list of links. The last time I updated these was about four months ago and when I checked the website for RiponRail, it had not been updated for two years. I didn’t want to link to what was potentially an outdated page that may no longer even be managed by the group. If it was hacked because it was not being maintained, I would be unhappy with any users of my site being impacted by that. The other issue is that most of the lists on this site are arranged in either expected date of opening or (most likely) alphabetical order.

      If you do have an updated website or can confirm that RiponRail WordPress is the best place for interested parties looking for more information, I will be more than happy to add the link. In addition, I am more than happy to post details for any interested people to contact you or join a mailing list if you have one in the next update I do about the latest developments.

      I will certainly be watching your groups progress. The recent reports are very positive on the long road to restoring Ripon back to the rail network.

      Good Luck

      Kind regards


    1. Hi Graham,

      I have not updated these pages recently and I can only apologise for not adding Askern to this list. I will update it immediately. I have been following your Facebook group for some time and look forward to further positive developments. Please keep in touch.

      Kind regards
