By way of opening, yes, I am aware that BR does not exist anymore. This however, is an opinion about the whole rail network and it seemed fitting to put it here, after all, as you will see, BR had its merits. Many of us rely on rail travel every day and there can be few people who have ... Read review

Not By Rail

Advantageswill get you from A to B - eventually

Disadvantagesneed I comment?

"By way of opening, yes, I am aware that BR does not exist anymore. This however, is an opinion about the whole rail network and it seemed fitting to put it here, after all, as you will see, BR had its merits. Many of us rely on rail travel every day and there can be few people who have never been on a train. Whether we use the railways for daily commuting or the occasional trip away we should be able to rely on the fact that there will be trains, ..." Read review

The case of the missing driver

AdvantagesSometimes faster

DisadvantagesOh, far too many to detail

"...know that this is the British Rail category and that good old BR don't technically exist anymore but at this point you don't know what I'm going to write about (and hey, neither do I) so tough. But what am I actually going to address during today's outpouring of drivel? Actually I'll be documenting my experiences as a rail traveller and addressing the pros and cons of chucking away your car keys and heading for the train station instead. What qualifies ..."

Young Persons Travel Card - The smart choice

Advantages Quick easy savings

Disadvantages Must be renewed every year

"...They are available from any British rail ticket office and cost £18 for one year at the end of which it must be renewed. If you have never had a young persons rail card the you will need to take along proof of your age such as a passport or driving licence (or for mature students a letter from your academic institution) and a passport size photograph (I'm not sure if its one or two so its probably best to take along 2 just in case). You will also ..." Read review

Wrong train at Sheffield.

AdvantagesI like trains.

DisadvantagesNot enough clear information.

"During a recent train journey we had to change trains at Sheffield. This didn’t seem a big problem. I think that at this point I should stress that although I love travelling on trains I don’t use them very often. As we got off the first train the PA system announced that the train we wanted was at platform 3a. We crossed the footbridge, found platform 3, checked on the display monitor that the train was going to Worksop and got on ..." Read review

Potty training

AdvantagesStations are well equipped with amenities

DisadvantagesNot enough room in this slot, said the plumber to the midwife

"High speed rail networks exist due to umpteen individuals who access this mode of transport on a daily basis. These are the regular users who systematically like clockwork; frequent the rail network for up to 2 hours a day. It is a lifestyle choice. Engineered to the London city clock watchers, rail travel correspond to working times of every citizen who embraces the ‘rat race’ with a grit and determination that is only rewarded with obscene rail ..."
