  • Excellent. I now have the names of the people to call in 2013 when I'm stuck on a 1950s Soviet troop train outside Milton Keynes on a 6 hour trip to Manchester.

  • What with the Barclays Brothers fiasco it's not been a good week for poor old Herbies.
    I hope Burges Salmon get their bill in quickly, as I suspect the First Group bid will be unsustainable.
    When I heard some boneheaded minister on the news last night utter the dread words "This is an excellent deal for the taxpayer" I started wondering how long it would be before this became another East coast main line story.

  • As in The Netherlands the granters get what they asked for. Loads of time table hours and the worst possible service they can pay for. Losers? Definately the passengers, eventually the taxpayer. Get rid of those incompetent civil servants!
