    Still very week on the historical front.

    Still plenty of useless footage surrounding concerts and weekend shenanigans. It adds nothing and detracts massively. The British public are generally a disgrace at the weekend.

    I'd argue it does plenty as it shows the public exactly the sort of idiots us railway staff have to contend with on a daily basis! I agree, a large majority of the travelling public at the weekend are a disgrace!

    It's not a tv series aimed at railway enthusiasts - they generally never are as the viewing figures would be pretty poor and at the end of the day all the production company want to make is a show that they can sell to mainstream tv channels, in this case an ITV production commisioned by BBC Scotland.

    Unfortunately those that watch this may not see it the same way as you guys do. There generally isn't any sense of shame these days.

    I'm aware it's not aimed at enthusiast, but honestly who really wants to watch hours of boring platform footage.

    There is a good bit of interesting footage that shows up but not expanded upon unfortunately.
