    "Govia Thameslink boss in first class row"

    Correct, albeit how did Boon know they weren't first class ticket holders. From the interviews with the person in question, he never asked... GTR have been running trains with declassified first for long enough on the 700s and now during peak services. This is the straw that broke the camel's...

    Yes, and transformed down at the location to 110v and also trans/rec to mainly 50v, along with 12v and 24v supplies.

    Incident at Loughborough Junction (18/06)

    Breaking a speed limit doesn’t go on a criminal record... Criminal damage on the other hand...

    Outgoing Network Rail boss made CBE

    This, and absolutely this. Absolute disgrace of a project that wasted so much time, and scarce resources. He's been there for no length of time, and his reward was his copious pay cheque. His bauble from the government is a slap in the face to staff who have been there for 40 years...

    Row over female-only compartments being used by transgender people on Caledonian sleeper service

    Row over female-only compartments being used by transgender people on Caledonian sleeper service

    The point was there was a lot of Mumsnet bashing, I wanted to know how they'd know it was as bad as it was. And your comment about people with nothing better to do equally applies to almost every forum. See the hypocrisy?

    Row over female-only compartments being used by transgender people on Caledonian sleeper service

    So you're not an expert, and only read the sensationalist threads. You can easily say that about ANY internet forum...

    Row over female-only compartments being used by transgender people on Caledonian sleeper service

    Lots of Mumsnet experts here. How much time have you been browsing to form these expert opinions, or is it just supposition? And why are you browsing Mumsnet anyway...

    Railway Enthusiasts at Stations - is a clearer policy needed?

    Not many selfie takers use tripods. Self moving bi-pods maybe, but no, not tripods.

    Scotrail Franchise - Abellio

    That, I do agree with. Within the context of the discussion, it was fairly obvious. I forget it's RF though, where pedantry rules. Sorry to Highlandspring

    Scotrail Franchise - Abellio

    And? GQS was perfectly understandable, and makes more sense than the CRS code. Needless nit-picking.

    Most Misleading Railway Advertising?

    Most of the early Trainline adverts claiming they'll save you money compared with buying a ticket on the day at the station. Well yes, but they were comparing Advance fares with non-advance, and you could buy the same advance fares at the station anyway...

    Caledonian Sleeper Mk5 Discussion

    Well yes! And as for the tap in front of the window blind... I'm still thinking from the photos seen so far, that whoever designed the Mark 3 made a very good use of a small space, this one, not so much.
