Gawd - Nearly Everyone's Rude!

AdvantagesReliable, relaxing, excellent food

DisadvantagesTruly dreadful staff

"...and a restaurant car. First Great Western aren't much better and then when you start to hit some of the smaller operators, it's like something out of the Third World. There's no doubt, therefore, that GNER sits way ahead of the competition in terms of style and standards and this is a key contributor in the regulator's decision to renew their operating licence.

The tale of the Late and Never Early Railway.

AdvantagesFast and Efficient

DisadvantagesYou are trapped with a group of people who can be a challenge to say the least

"...Containers under the guise of Great North Eastern Railways (GNER) and things became to change. The Trains themselves were given a mid life upgrade both internally and externally including a smart new blue livery. The crest of GNER appeared on all the carriages and the logo the route of the Flying Scotsman was added as a touch of well perhaps not nostalgia but a ploy perhaps to add romance to the railways again. Speed was never the issue this time ..." Read review

GNER...Get NearEr...Reverse

AdvantagesComfortable trains

Disadvantagesdelays, breakdowns, customer service

"GNER (or Great North Eastern Railway) operates the main route from Glasgow to Kings Cross. A quote from their web site “Punctuality, reliability and safety remain our top priorities, underpinned by a firm commitment to customer service.” In my opinion they have some work to do! I’ve used GNER a fair bit as I used to live in Peterborough and would travel home to Newcastle and have only ever suffered minor delays (around 20ish mins). ..." Read review

Take the Hogwarts Express to London

AdvantagesRelaxing, simple, comparatively cheap.

DisadvantagesOccasional delays, buffet still not exactly brilliant.

"Why fly to London? Ok, well maybe you're located in Scotland and need to visit England for work on a regular basis. Most business peeps here in Edinburgh can regularly be seen dragging their mini trolleys and their laptops out to the airport - convinced that the one and a bit hour flight down to London town is going to save them time, money and hassle. Oh - and make them look prestigious too. As if! I have been a frequent flyer on the Edinburgh ..." Read review

Not so Great North Eastern Railway

AdvantagesQuicker than the coach/car

DisadvantagesWhere do I start?... See op

"I live in London but grew up in the north-east. I travel home to see family about four times a year and have done so for the past eight years on the only train company that goes to Darlington from London (Kings Cross): GNER. I have had cause for complaint so many times in the last few years, I couldn't tell you, due to the frequent delays, dirty trains, and rude staff and have often received vouchers to contribute towards my next journey as a result. ..."
