There are worse forms of transport, I think. The National Express coach from London Victoria coach station to Liverpool was ....erm......an experience  ;D
But its cheaper, guaranteed a seat, and isn't raping the tax payer of their hard earned.

At least you're guaranteed a seat on the coach.
Next to the student, backpacker, drunk, nutter  ;D
Better that than having to share a doorway with them on the train.

That said, I have done the overnight train from Lundun to Edinbugger and also an overnight coach from Lundun to Mancchester. Couldn't tell you which was worse :-\

But surely after the cull , there will be more room on the roads and tarmacking  over rail lines will provide a network of fast roads reserved for omega drivers  :-\
I'm sure I read that in TB's manifesto  :P

The way the doom mongers are going on, it's going to be less cull, more global annihilation  :D

FFS.....who cares any more?

If you are one of the millions using the railways everyday, you would care, especially when your fares are going up out of line with your wages, or you are a commercial concern relying on the railway network to move your goods! ::) ::) :D ;)
The fares are rising, the subsidies remain the same, and the "profits" remain consistently low.  That sounds like its a sinking ship that we should jump, as it will never improved.

And the only people using trains are commuters.  I suspect the rest count for less than 15%.
Surely no one would take one for fun?  :o

Exactly!  The common rail passenger is going to work in some form or another, or coming back ::) ::) :D :D ;)

I've had to share the toilet cubicle thing with other passengers in the past.  I recall one day coming back from Brum, sharing with a colourful character popping strong pain killers like smarties, to ease his back, and dulling the pain with a bottle of vodka.  I let him have the bog seat, I just stood next to him.

I would like to know what will happen this year, but I don't have 20 20 vision.

The Chiltern Slug has huge bog cubicles, to make them disabled friendly.  I I've been in there with 7 or 8 people before.

I appreciate that your choice of employment gives you forty holidays a year, but at what cost :o
