CITY VIEWS: HAS YOUR TRAIN CARRIAGE BEEN GETTING BUSIER?

RON BARNES | MILES SMITH
“Yes, they have become so busy that it is unbearable. The new fast trains on my route have been allowed to increase fares more than others. There also seem to be more houses being built along the line, presumably because of such expensive housing closer to the City.”

CLIVE GILBERT | INCEPTA
“Yes, they have become noticeably busier. I've taken to travelling first class because it is getting harder to get a seat. I know they have cut back on the number of carriages, and also the fact that fuel is still so expensive means people prefer to commute by train.”

RISHI CHOUDHURY | TINDALL RILEY MARINE
“Not particularly. Personally I think they have always been a busy, slow and inefficient service and I haven’t seen any obvious changes. I have noticed an increase in prices, but it is understandable why.”
