why don't you fly? it only takes an hour and is about the same price if you go economy. Glasgow is fab.

The nearest airport that flys to glasgow is bristol, which is almost halfway there. So it wouldn't be as cheap.

Fucking hell i'm going to die on this train. It will either crash, or I will melt, or I will just die of bordem.

Where are you in the country if Bristol is half way to Glasgow?

Train travel is fun. I love it because I can sit in the dinner car drinking my ass off and chating up all the cute ladies. :beer:

Truly a civilized way to travel.

:lol: obviously you've never experienced a packed Virgin cross country with obligatory delays at Birmingham

And in England we don't talk to people in situations like that. :D

And how on earth is it going to take 10 hours on the train anyway?

Exeter to Glasgow is under 7 hours direct, just under 8 if you have to change twice.

lol. I do like the image of Oerdin trying to be all Cary Grant though :)

these days I'd rather pay the extra 15 quid to upgrade to first class on long journeys, but even then they invariably cancel and delay some so you end up picking up the stragglers and then they all get let in first class anyway. Virgin trains would be excellent if only they'd add a few more carriages and stop all the crappy delays. I also think all trains should have a family carriage where people can take their whining brats to whine at each other instead of innocent bystanders. And they should enforce the no mobile zone they put in place because there's always some fucker using theirs in the no mobile carriage.

Yeah.

Their new trains are a missed opportunity too.

They are comfy and everything, and air conditioned... but there aren't enough seats, they are always late and you can only have 2 bikes on the entire train!

yep. Its a shame because it could be like Oerdin's civilised vision!!

Funko

Yep. :)

They have put more trains on the lines, but the new trains are shorter. Why not have more longer trains. :idea:

Dutch double decker trains are cool.

yes real novelty being able to go upstairs on a train! Shame we cant have those in britain. We would have to rebuild about a thousand bridges.

That is just not true! We often break into a complaining mumble when our train has been waiting outside London Bridge for more than 10 minutes and I had to be at the boozer ten minutes ago! Bah!
