    I and others including students from CRC are concerned that trains from Shepreth won’t go directly to and from Cambridge North next year. Trains offered by Greater Anglia to and from Cambridge North don’t tie in with the Govia ones only allowing a 4 min window to get from Platform 1- 8. I have missed 3 trains in the last fortnight trying this method.
    Students and workers from Shepreth are very rightly upset that this train will cease as of next year.
    Please can you advise Govia of our concerns.
