There was a whole thread dedicated to it:I'm surprised no one has mentioned the axing of a handful of peak services that has occurred.
Something you see very rarely on VTWC.They seem to be almost manically committed to getting the trolley down standard now, although to be fair that's continuing a trend that was already starting to happen under VTEC. Overall though, same trains, same staff same management, same absolutely insane unusable ticket machines.
This sort of thing is just like the Ancient Egyptian Pharoahs, who would have the names of their predecessors chiselled off stone monuments.I did notice an odd patch of plastic covering parts of the large vinyl pictures on the toilet walls - I realised it was covering the Virgin hot air balloon in the corner of the picture!
I know, that's partly why I'm surprised that no one mentioned it.There was a whole thread dedicated to it:
Virgin still has 600 tonne, 125 mph mobile branding billboards running up and down the country.Also I'm not sure why VTEC couldnt remove all the Virgin badges from trains before their last days. They had notice of the day of ending and other Tocs seem to have managed it.
Presumably VTEC put this up and it's historic from then?I noticed yesterday while booking some tickets that LNER have got pictures of Virgin Pendolinos on their website...
