Andrew Adonis’ throwaway comments underline how vulnerable the existing Islip service might become in future:
Islip – 2 passengers off, 2 on. It’s not worth slowing down the ‘fast’ Oxford trains from Marylebone by up to 5 mins for this stop. @chilternrailway should be trying for a regular 1 hour service to Oxford; it is much – & needlessly – slower than this pic.twitter.com/hOltJvxVxg

OBRAG believes that Islip station is an important economic and social infrastructure asset that could and should be optimally used via a maintained or ideally enhanced timetable for Islip. This helps to take pressure away from the facilities at Parkway by allowing Islip residents and others to commute directly from Islip.
Adonis is as wrong as Beeching was!
