Tunbridge Wells & District Railway Travellers’ Association
The Association has existed for over forty years to represent the interests of both commuters and rail users in this area and is principally concentrated on High Brooms, Tunbridge Wells and Frant stations but has members right down the line as far as St. Leonards.
We are a small but energetic group who want our part of the rail network to have these key elements –
· Punctual and reliable train service
· Clean trains & stations
· Active efforts to reduce overcrowding
· A customer focused and responsive train operator
We produce a twice yearly newsletter and aim to hold an AGM, usually in September in Tunbridge Wells where we have guest speakers from our train operator and a chance to put your point of view. More recently, we have moved to a web-presence, with news updates being posted as they occur.
We also hold liaison meetings with Southeastern Railway so if there is an issue which you would like the Association to raise please feel free to let the secretary or myself know.
The Association is represented at the South Eastern Passenger Forums held twice per year and at the Public Transport Forum on Tunbridge Wells Borough Council.
Association membership puts you in good company with men and women who spend a great deal of money on rail travel and who are concerned about how the service is delivered.
Tonbridge, Sevenoaks and Edenbridge all have rail user groups so we are not alone in seeking to obtain the very best from our rail service and the West Kent / East Sussex rail corridor is an important part of the network both as major revenue source from commuters but also leisure, schools and tourist traffic.
