    why are there engineering works every year affecting Southwest Trains?

    I am not sure for other lines, but there are engineering works for Southwest Train lines every year in the winter months which often make train journey longer and less frequent. I wonder is it because of the falls from the Autumns or some other reasons.

    I know that the absolute time spent on the tube trains could be as little as 10 mintutes but the main challenge is from dragging a big airline suitcase down the tube, it's even not pleasant to go through the ticket barriers. In many mass rapid transit systems in the world, big baggages are not...

    So it's quite obvious that public transport is much for working / weekend into London or some busy town centres / people who can't drive / welfare for elderly, children / long haul travel etc. Imagine outside London if you have a meal with your friends or family in a pub about 1 or 2 miles...

    Rail tickets up whiles petrol price down

    Of course buying a car and insurance etc is a huge investment compared to public transport. But as for people who already had a car ( I believe most of those living in the suburbs did) then it's another story. I know many people who travel into London for work yet still keep cars in their...
