Midland Main Line

I frequently travel between London and Leicester, since my other half lives there, and I have found that Midland Mainline offer the most consistent, reliable service there and back.

"...and I have found that Midland Mainline offer the most consistent, reliable service there and back. In a world where trains seem to be getting worse and worse, Midland Mainline, in my opinion at least, are a breath of fresh air. Or rather, a lungful of diesel fumes. I wanna travel North.

This is how all train companies should be run

Advantages Smart trains, fast, reliable, comfortable, friendly

DisadvantagesWebsite doesn't work for me

"The Midland Mainline runs out from London through Leicester and branches out to Nottingham and Sheffield with limited morning/evening trains to Leeds. -------------- HISTORY Midland Mainline were probably the forgotten Intercity operator back in the 90s. They operated High Speed Trains at 110mph up a route which ran adjacent to the much faster East Coast Main Line (GNER). The trains were not very fast back then due to frequent stops, and ..."

No longer in business

AdvantagesFrequent trains, free tea and coffee

DisadvantagesFrequent delays, high ticket prices, uncomfortable Turbostars

"...* I have been travelling on Midland Mainline almost every working day for over five years from my home in Leicestershire to work in London. I have seen it all. When the service works well, and you are aboard one of their High Speed Trains (HSTs) as opposed to their Turbostars, it is a good way of getting about. For the occasional journey to the Midlands, and now to Manchester, I would recommend it. But sadly, a lot of the time it is a complete ..." Read review

Let me use my railcard all the time

AdvantagesFast service, complimentary tea and coffee

DisadvantagesCan't use Saver tickets from London until after 7pm on a Friday

"I use Midland Mainline frequently, on average every other weekend, to travel from London St Pancras to Derby. On the whole I find the service they offer to be acceptable, it is certainly not the worst train company I have travelled with and generally the trains are pretty much on time, or only slightly delayed. They offer complimentary tea and coffee to customers which is a nice touch more train companies should consider (however I often find it difficult ..." Read review
