My first ever long train bash a few months back now Was in first class so wasn't so painful but I definitely would not be able to do more than 1 consecutive night on the seated coach again. Here is the journey I took, as well as what I got offered. 0530 9/9 New St - Chester 0643 (Virgin 221) Scrambled egg and smoked salmon. Egg was made from a powder and overall quite small portion.0716 Chester - Newport 0941 (TfW 67 + mk3s) Full English breakfast. Very good portion size, very impressive meal.1010 Newport - Bristol Parkway 1031 (GWR 800) Biscuit and juice. Not much more to ask for a 20min journey1040 Bristol Parkway - Leeds 1400 (XC 220) Pre-BHM person very generous in giving biscuits, snacks and drinks. Post-BHM got a BLT sandwich and muffin1421 Leeds - York 1443 (TPE 68 + mk5s) Biscuit and water. Offerings seemed more limited than other companies1458 York - KGX 1650 (LNER HST) Chicken casserole. Good portion size, nice meal.1707 EUS - Stafford 1824 (Virgin 390) Fish linguine. Tiny portion size, but otherwise tasty.1843 Stafford - EUS 2003 (Virgin 390) Chicken curry. Again tasty, but tiny portion size. Also got a tiny lemon cheesecake as dessert. Euston lounge: decent range of snacks and drinks on offer, but busy. Bathroom clean enough to freshen up in, showers not so clean so wouldn't particularly like to have a shower there.2115 EUS - Stirling 0457 (CS 90/67 + mk3s) Was too stingy to pay for a berth supplement. Stirling lounge: small but I was the only person to use it. Very nice array of scottish drinks and snacks to help yourself to. Very clean bathroom, and they provide towels to have a shower.0549 10/9 Stirling - Glasgow Queen St 0627 (Scotrail 385) No first class0648 Glasgow Central - Edinburgh 0752 (LNER IC225) Full LNER breakfast. Portion on small side, but no complaints Edinburgh lounge: my favourite lounge. Large, wide unique array of snacks.0830 Edinburgh - Newcastle 0955 (LNER HST) Full LNER breakfast. Newcastle lounge: small, basic offering compared to other LNER lounges1026 Newcastle - York 1128 (LNER IC225) Vegetarian tomato + cheese cannelloni. Piping hot, very tasty1138 York - Leeds 1205 (TPE 185) Biscuit + water1230 Leeds - Wakefield Kirkgate 1301 (Northern 144) Only standard class1315 Wakefield Kirkgate - Mirfield 1327 (GC 180) Nothing was offered1339 Mirfield - Leeds 1403 (Northern 142) Only standard class1415 Leeds - KGX 1633 (LNER 800) Chicken casserole KGX lounge: busy like EUS, but well stocked.1718 KGX - Newark North Gate 1841 (LNER 800) Chef signature salmon dish + chocolate cheesecake. Very nice meal1842 Newark North Gate - Darlington 1957 (LNER 800) Chef signature salmon dish. Given less potatoes + veg compared to the previous journey, probably because of not getting on at KGX.2022 Darlington - Edinburgh 2219 (LNER HST) Crew didn't seem to be doing hot food anymore. Got a beef sandwich after I asked if there was any food at all.2233 Edinburgh - Stirling 2318 (Scotrail 385) This had first class. No catering this late, and the seats were my least favourite of all the trains I went on.0017 11/9 Stirling - EUS 0749 (CS 67/90 + mk3s) Same train as I had caught up from London. Could just about get to sleep but not comfortable.0831 STP - Derby 1010 (EMR 222) Full English Breakfast. Better than LNER, not as good as TfW1016 Derby - Doncaster 1116 (XC 220) BLT sandwich + muffin1124 Doncaster - Grantham 1159 (HT 180) Chicken sandwich + crisps. Busy first class but pleasantly surprised at how efficient the service was1208 Grantham - KGX 1323 (LNER 800) Fishcakes. No other hot food choice available (This service had started from Newark before the Lincoln services had started, potentially explaining the lack of food availability)1415 PAD - Cardiff 1622 (GNER 800) A vegan wrap (apparently the only thing they had when I asked for a sandwich) and biscuits Cardiff lounge: small, but had biscuits and drinks1716 Cardiff - Chester 1957 (TfW 67 + mk3s) Kebab starters, pan fried lamb main, apple pie + ice cream dessert. Very impressed at what is included with the ticket2019 Chester - Crewe 2041 (TfW 175) Only standard class2054 Crewe - New St 2154 (Virgin 221) Hot sausage roll. Good size.
