National Express 336 to shorten

It has been announced that Britain's longest route, the 336 Penzance to Edinburgh has now been shortened to only cover between Plymouth and Edinburgh. 

Not enough people have been using the service, and with the vehicle being used inefficiently with a 21 hour layover in Penzance the decision was made to cut all 336s into Cornwall. There are still plenty of coaches going into Cornwall but this is yet another blow for these longer routes. 

In years past the old X1 from Plymouth to Penzance was withdrawn and 'replaced' by the National Express routes, but even these are struggling with a relativity low intake of passengers.
