Working on my, possibly erroneous, view that the dispute centred around an attempt by the DfT to remove Guards / Conductors from even more services  - a policy with which I completely disagree - I regard this announcement as very good news.
If it also serves to heap more opprobrium upon the incompetent that is Chris Grayling - our elected representative who lectures us on the dangers of global warming/climate change while cancelling numerous rail electrification schemes - that can only be a good thing.

At least it shouldn't affect the Queen's ability to get there.

Her train is operated by DBS.
