The Deputy First Minister and Transport Minister gave the promise there will be no closures along the line.
The concerns arose because officials at Strathclyde Partnership for Transport felt there was a problem in the future if the line was left out of an electrification programme.
They rightly raised those concerns, being discussed today, as they believed there was potential for impact on local services.
However, this is not the first time there has been concerns over the local line in the north west of Glasgow. The previous, more expensive, plan to run extra trains in and out of Queen Street to the capital would have meant no room for the Anniesland train to get on the main line to reach the station.
It would need to go the long way round and frankly who would use that? Fewer passengers means less income and the route eventually gets axed.
Stations were also at risk from a consultation option to close stations within a mile of one another, until again a ministerial re-assurance was eventually given.
There is also the situation where whenever there are delays to services to and from Edinburgh, Perth, Aberdeen, Stirling and other lucrative routes, the first service to be cancelled is the Anniesland train.
This way it frees up a platform in the station to get trains in and out to relieve the congestion.
It seems obvious that to the transport planners the Anniesland service presents a problem and the high level platform space could be used for a train which commands higher fares.
However it is a line with growing passenger numbers and with stations in communities with low car ownership and in some parts infrequent bus service, the train is a vital means of getting about.
It has been suggested the concerns were politically motivated and the real issue of local transport could have become lost had it become a political football.
While much of the transport planning we hear about is about big national flagship projects like HS2, whether it's in Scotland or from London heading north, it is vital the local network is not neglected.
Which is where SPT comes in. Some people may say it only runs the Subway, but this week has shown the need for organisations who will raise the issue of local transport links and promote the necessity.
Thankfully what we also saw this week was government ministers who recognised the importance of the local network and issued a quick response to allay the fears.
So everyone is happy and we can all get on board the harmony express.
Oh, sorry, that train has been cancelled.
