World’s your Oyster, rail users are promised - Richmond and Twickenham Times
More on news.bbc.co.uk.
In a nutshell, South West Trains are to be replaced by Stagecoach who won the franchise. They also promised to improve the service and introduce Oyster ticketing. Better late than never, but that also means that North Sheen users won't be able to use the valid excuse of the unmanned ticket desk and changeless ticket machine to get a free ride :-)
Finally, our condolances to Susan Kramer who has lost her husband.
Beautiful Station Entrances
