Claustrophobic new trains
Yet another MIC (Masterpiece in Claustrophobia) from the privatised railway. Are they trying to outdo Virgin? The only criterion they work to is the maximum number of seats they can fit in their trains. Group travel, leg room, luggage space, see the passing view, enjoy your journey? Not likely.
This may suit FGW's captive commuting market in and out of London, but certainly not the longer distance optional travellers who might (like many when FGW jammed together the seats in the refurbished the Mk3's) decide one journey is enough and go back to their cars..
