Absolutely. I can still picture some of the Mk1 travelling environments, and it certainly isn’t rose-tinted spectacles. For me the provided a quite pleasant travelling experience. The only things which are better now are the lack of slam doors (although personally I had no problem with them) and crashworthiness. Things arguably moved forwards with Networkers and Electrostars (especially the earlier versions of Electrostar), but have slipped very much backwards with recent designs like the 700.
