Sadly, given the real desire and demand to re-link MME with LON, this would appear to be a not-all-that-fancy fake. Sorry :-(.
The website is a cut-and-paste job from Porter in Canada. Compare:
Durham Tees Valley’s silence on the subject is deafening, and even the local newspaper now realises that it was probably sold a pup.
Whatever transpires, it remains the case that the only commercially viable route between LON and MME is into LHR for (interline) onward connections; for O&D traffic, the train service from Darlington will almost always be quicker and more convenient.
So, this ‘project’ could be a particular shame as it may have diverted attention away from the real need, albeit accepting that neither BA nor BD are ever likely to relink MME with LHR.
