I've just been reading Modern Railway magazine and spotted in the editor's note that the new LM and TPE 350's that will replace the 185's will only have 53 more seats than the current 185's. Who order's train's in this backward country?. Overcrowding is common place on most services so the government and Network Rail keep telling us, so why order new trains that are just not big enough, what a short sighted waste of what is taxpayers money. Using Pendolino's as the editor says must surely be a better idea, one that would make overcrowding on the Man-Scotland a thing of the past. Why do we the paying passenger have to put with such a pathetic government.
