Re: British Rail

Not that long and probably not as long as driving.

If I caught the 07.13 from Durham I would be in Oban in time for lunch. (06h 30m).

Re: Cheap Drink And A Meal Anyone ?

They should open a Greggs on site and do away with the subsidised dining rooms.

Maybe allow them a 'meal deal' per day. :)

Re: Phone unlocking

Re: British Rail

But gauge is so fundamental to the railway (and always has been) that I fail to understand how it can be so easily overlooked by train designers. Blaming the software just doesn't cut it.

Re: British Rail
