    New Screens for Waterloo

    The LED displays at my local station are awful, but since before they were fitted there was simply no information on the platform its better than nothing, the signs can't be read whenever the sun comes out though! Most of summer in the morning you can only use annoucments, the displays look like...

    Automatic Ticket Barriers Coming to SWT

    I'm suprised Nottingham does'nt have them, I'd have thought it more cost effective than the current way of doing it with six staff covering the main entrance, but then it would need to be redesigned so instead of three smaller doors theres one larger one, maybe they'll do it in the refurbisment...

    FGW Passengers To Strike Back

    Now then Nick, its suggestions like that the get people in lots of trouble, taking trains out of sidings, don't be so ridiculus, if you do that then the sidings would be empty! A nightmare! Sheesh, see the bigger picture here! Yes I'm childish. I saw it on rail chat to, I think its a great...

    The bus with plenty of shroom upstairs

    Classy, so not only did they do a crap repair job they then did'nt clean the bus properly, looking at the photos it does'nt look very clean, I must say Trent Bartons busses always seem spotlessly clean! Its rare I even see a bit of litter and I've never seen dirt in the corners of windows or...

    Complaint to SWT!

    I think he ought to complain, the train has been designed/operated in a mannor that makes it difficult to contact a staff member, and meant the only avalible staff member was the train driver. This is a problem in itself, if theres an onboard emergency it would mean a gaurd couldn't get to the...

    Farce Great Western

    It amazes me that in this age of health and safety that this could even be allowed, any other transport has a maximum number of passengers yet rail seems to have a policy of if the doors will shut its ok. On the plus side central also have these problems on some of there services and its saving...

And it constitutes a strike when it is reported as a "unoffcial strike" both by the staff I...

    The Central Trains class 170 internal doors never seem to work, and they are all looking a bit worse for wear, but are still the best on centrals flett, the other trains are in even worse condition. The 170's air con is awful when it breaks though since theres no windows that open.
