The rail network and its connections (or lack of) with other modes of transport are an important factor for the economic regeneration of many of our towns and the region. It is particular important for sectors such as tourism. When we look elsewhere in the UK, Ireland and Europe there is major investment in the rail networks as hey are seen as essential. Hopefully we shall see similar commitment in Northern Ireland.
