Perhaps you might have needed to know that ?? South West Trains is a wholly owned subsidiary of Stagecoach Group.

PLEASE END THE STRAIN ON THE TRAIN

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesThe worst mode of transport on the face of the planet

"...about the terrible state of South West Trains. I can hardly bring myself to pay for my train ticket nowadays when I know what type of journey I can expect. I use SW Trains to get into work everyday (early morning and evening), and travel from Guildford to Waterloo. My gripe lies not with the staff at SW Trains, I think they make the best of what they have and are usually polite and happy to help, but with the state of the trains which are absolutely ..."

This train dont stop here anymore

AdvantagesAcceptable when the service is running properly, new trains soon, new information system soon, frequency

DisadvantagesDelays, dated trains, peak hours, patronising, see stories section

"South West Trains (SWT) operate services between London Waterloo and the South West of England; reaching places like Reading, Exeter, and Southampton etc, it also runs a suburban network through south west London… I’ve been travelling one the “Reading” line for almost 4 years now, and this is what I think of them, I can only speak on behalf of this line, there is a chance I could mislead you on the general picture… ••The ..."

WHY THE RAIL COMPANIES WILL NEVER GET BETTER

AdvantagesI can get to work

DisadvantagesNo choice over whether I use them and appalling customer service

"...the board of management from South West Trains who will be passing down the carriages. If you have any questions please feel free to ask them." Ah-ha, so that is what they are up to. Then again, at our first stop, West Byfleet, "Good Morning and welcome to those passengers who have joined the 0733 semi-fast service to London Waterloo calling at….." and then they again told us that there were South West Train managers on board. Shortly ..." Read review

Save Our Time, Save Your Time, Please Take The Bus

Advantages[below]

Disadvantages[below]

"I myself travel using South West Trains very frequently, and in writing this opinion I also draw on the comments of father who daily catches the 0752 from Guildford to Waterloo, using a season ticket which cost him many thousands of pounds. Trains are frequently delayed, cancelled or short in carriages, causing much disruption, which people who have spent a lot on their ticket do not deserve. Having finally managed to get on the train, they ..." Read review
