Just a post to kind of re-iterate that though there are sometimes problems on our railways, most of the time it works OK. Pendelino Wilmslow to Crewe just after 08:00 today, LM 350 to BHM and another one on to BI for the NEC (Flying show). On return, XC Voyager BI to Stockport (packed as far as Stafford) but I did get a seat (much less packed after Stafford). ATW back to Wilmslow. All for a bit over £20 with a SRC. Beats driving!
