    Caledonian Sleeper

    I have received the email today and whilst it makes sense I don't believe much of the content in it. This is an organisation that over the last ten days have wilfully blanked customers desperate to get a resolution for their travel plans, expected them to fork out hundreds of pounds a second...

    When scrolling through Facebook this morning a 40% off offer for LNER popped up with a “We’ve missed you message”. There was a button to click to save the offer which was then emailed to me from Facebook. It may be worth having a scroll through your social media feeds to see if there is...

    Edinburgh to London tickets changing to via York rather than any permitted

    It's certainly one that Scotlands travel correspondent of the year - Al Dalton should be getting his teeth into

    There were some earlier today as I booked Edinburgh to Liverpool for two separate dates. Was surprised to get a £1 ticket for Saturday lunchtime out of Liverpool tbh

    Inverness Station redevelopment

    Is the Rose St car park not to be demolished to make way for a new Hampton by Hilton hotel? Or is there land adjacent to it?

    Caledonian Sleeper

    On a recent trip I was moved to B1 which was the PRM berth with the double bed. The doors beeping was audible but to be honest that didn't bother me that much. What did bother me was Susan Calman continually yelping that the toilet doors were opening, closing and locked.

    Caledonian Sleeper

    There is also the option of the loco that takes the Edinburgh portion to Carstairs heading off to Polmadie, pick up the two FW coaches and taking them to Edinburgh before heading back to Carstairs for the morning Northbound

    Caledonian Sleeper

    I'd imagine it would be a straight swap in the middle of the night between Southbound and Northbound services if it is required. There is no point in inconveniencing the Aberdeen passengers and screwing up the formations and adding potential delays to the shunt.

    Didn't they run the coach to somewhere like Dumbarton the last time this happened?

    Caledonian Sleeper

    I’ll hold my hands up and admit I only looked southbound and admit I should have looked at both. There is no availability for classic or club southbound this week out of Aberdeen.

    Caledonian Sleeper

    With regards to discounting tickets, is there really a need to do so at the moment? Looking at availability for the next week or so I’d honestly say no. The only service that looks like there is potential over capacity is the Fort William service which is to be expected at this time of year...

    Caledonian Sleeper

    The menu on my journeys over the last two weeks was different to the one online. The chicken is served with red cabbage and stovies IIRC

    Caledonian Sleeper

    Must have been very recent as that picture was taken in the last fortnight.

    Caledonian Sleeper

    The chicken is rather nice in my opinion. The full breakfast in the lounge is also notably better than it was a year ago. picture of the chicken attached.

    When did it go down to two? It was three a fortnight ago when I was on it

    London North Eastern Railway First Class service

    Going by the size of that portion it's about time another one was.

    Caledonian Sleeper

    On the subject of the rattling. I’ve had a couple of trips over the last fortnight. Southbound from Aberdeen I was in B1 which is the PRM room with the double bed due to an issue with the initial berth. I didn’t notice any particular/prolonged rattling etc and slept for a good 6/6.5 hours...

    Caledonian Sleeper

    Again what value does it add when the vast majority are sleeping and won’t give a damn or be able to do anything about the delay until daylight hours? No one delayed in the middle of the night is going to phone ahead to their destination and say hey I’m running late. It’s not the E* and it’s...

    Caledonian Sleeper

    Yes I’ve seen how they do it but I don’t see what good it will do or what value it will add at circa 3am. For example.... The train has come to a halt just outside Warrington at 3:12am and is now delayed 30 minutes. What value is there in firing out a tweet at 3am with this info? Probably...
