Northern Rail will be put into public ownership, on 1st March. Arriva Rail North have run the Northern franchise since April 2016, and everything was a bit of a disaster since timetable changes in 2018

Of course, this isn't going ot change anything at all short term, it won't suddenly fix staffing and rolling stock issues, so its still a bit of a mess, rather than an ultimate quick fix.

Here's something I made some years ago, partly inspired by Video125 and other YouTube videos.

Vancouver's newest 'Skytrain' route, the Canada Line opened in August 2009, and was a showpiece for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games. This video explores almost every single station on the route, and its connections to other destinations.

I enjoyed the Vancouver SkyTrain network when I visited in 2015. Awesome system and love the short trains every 2 minutes type approach they have.
