COMMUTERS continued their battle with rail chiefs yesterday (Wednesday) - and sent them a special Valentine's Day message.
Ashwell and Morden commuters sent bosses at train operator's First Capital Connect a giant heart-shaped Valentine's card with the message: "Don't break our hearts by taking our trains away."
The move is part of the Ashwell and Morden Rail User Group's campaign against cuts to fast train services to London. The station lost one of its fast services to King's Cross in December.
And according to a draft timetable issued to the Ashwell and Morden Rail Users Group by First Capital Connect further cuts to services are planned for December 2007, which may see the station's morning peak service cut from 10 trains to eight and a cut in carriage numbers.

"The loss of our fast train has added extra time on our already long days in London, taking us away from our loved ones.
