    I thought readers ought to be aware of the schedule cuts now imposed on two of Avanti’s most important routes.

    Mention is made of the cutbacks between London, Birmingham and Manchester in today’s news.

    The cuts are because of staff shortages during the present time.

    They started today and Avanti cannot say when services will return to some sort of normality.

    As for the reduced schedules, readers who check with Trainline will see that the hourly service is displayed for Manchester while for Birmingham the display shows both the direct train and another involving a change in Nuneaton.

    The Avanti West Coast site is more detailed. It lists all the alternatives including those by rival operators.

    For example in the case of Birmingham it would display West Midlands Trains plus Chiltern Railways from Marylebone.
