Dear Network Rail Limited,
I should be very grateful if you could please provide me with information as to routes and stations at which Driver Controlled Operation is in use.
In particular, I wonder if you could please provide me with the following data:
1) A list of each station at which some or all services calling at that station operate under Driver Controlled Operation
2) A list of routes on which some or all services on that route are operated using Driver Controlled Operation.
If you don't have the precise information I am requesting, please advise what related data you do have; similarly if you think another organisation may be better placed to provide this data, please inform me.
