Trains would run at incredible speed, brake suddenly at speed restriction signs, then speed up again....

Passengers would pay the fare shown "on the meter", and wouldn't dare fall asleep in case the meter inexplicably ran faster....

The driver would announce: "You wouldn't believe who we had in here last week, mate..."

Station announcements would always claim that your train was just coming round the corner....

All trains would arrive 20 minutes later than the booked time....

Sometimes your train would be the equivalent of a Mercedes, sometimes a Ford Escort....

The train driver would only interrupt his mobile phone calls to chatter on the radio....

Trains wouldn't run south of the river at this time....

You would rarely find a driver whose native tongue was English....

The driver might help you off with your luggage, but expect a £20 tip...

Drivers uniform would be old brown leather bomber jacket, jeans and trainers.....

Drivers hours would be 0400 (Saturday) until 0200 (Monday)....

Already get that on Central Trains - can get a messed up 150/1... or a 170/3, all on the same diagram on different days!
