I’ve just been reviewing my work diary over the last month.
1st to 31st October - 19 days on train journeys – a total of 55 individual trains given various changes.
Train slightly late: 2 occasions
Significantly late: 0 occasions
On time or early: 53 occasions
I would say that’s superb given the complexity of rail travel and the number of variable factors.
Just as with the NHS there are often sweeping generalisations about poor rail services in England.
Rather than listen to those doom spreaders I speak as I find and as I have said many times on this Blog I feel we have a very good rail service in England.
The last month has again confirmed my opinion.
So thank you Virgin and Cross Country (both pictured above) These are the two main providers I've used in the last month.
November looks almost as busy for me on the rail network and I'm optimistic!
