City of culture needs fast trains

How splendid that Derry/Londonderry is to be UK City of Culture in 2013.

How splendid it would be, too, if, by the same year, the Coleraine/Stroke City railway line was re-laid with passing-loops and new signalling to provide a line-speed of 90mph and, therefore, a 90-minute schedule for a regular-interval hourly express service.

This would facilitate the hurtling of natives and visitors alike to the north west to experience the cultural wonderment of it all.
