Our assumption was that for the previous proposal for serving South Yorkshire using Meadowhall station, up to two High Speed 2 trains per hour would have served Meadowhall to and from London and up to three to and from Birmingham. This is shown in HS2 Ltd’s Economic Case for Phase 2b (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/hs2-phase-2b-crewe-to-manchester-west-midlands-to-leeds-economic-case, Appendix 2, p.42). These trains were assumed to be 200m trains apart from one London service of 400m.
