Orange Juice

Our expensive rail network is bust. It’s totally unfit for purpose. End of story.

    That just didn’t happen recently. It’s been fucked for ages. Also, compared to it’s European counterparts, it’s old, tatty and utterly filthy. Don’t ever, no matter how urgent, have a piss on a train. You’ll catch something.

      I could put up with most of that if it met its basic obligation, to deliver me to my destination. Today I boarded a service that was listed as cancelled in Edinburgh but started from Dunbar. The return journey from Newcastle was cancelled from everywhere, without notification. Intolerablilty emphasised by total indifference

        I agree totally with what you’re saying. I was a regular user until the extreme non-reliability set in. It’s such a shame because we have a first rate rail infrastructure and a third rate, poorly managed service.

    We just returned to Edinburgh for 2 weeks, and used the trains to visit family in Fife. One Sunday, a family member sent me a text saying that my trains was cancelled. I didn’t even know, but they had checked. Cancelled due to staff shortage! It was pretty good otherwise, but they need to get a handle on this cancelling nonsense at the last minute. Another train we got on was heaving because the train before it had been cancelled. I have a knee injury but it didn’t stop some young, able-bodied couple from sitting in the disabled seat, so we were crushed into a tight seat.
