The shouting was nothing mate, just walked past trying to ignore, biting my lip!

While it isn't the staffs thought if you're at the front line you're going to take some abuse for the shoddy service your employers are currently offering people who pay a lot of money.

My journey has been ok this week.have avoided delays even when going through stations that have problems.
When is goes wrong though it always goes terribly wrong and takes an extra hour to get home or to work.

I'm probably going to start driving soon which is a shame. I can't just lose out 4 days a month to southern

I guess it depends on personal preference. I am glad Govia won (obviously!), I had heard a few unsettling things about FCC (not First as a whole might I add) and their management style.

Interesting that they are finally replacing the 442 units on Gatwick Express. It is about time in all fairness the 442s are falling apart.

I agree. From a staff point of view and for those who remember connex pleased govia have got it. changing franchise always risky. Now hopefully can concentrate on service as long as network rail improve infrastructure as well.

Lots of promises there. Still new trains always look good eh. First might lose scotrail soon, and possibly the sleepers too, and obviously gaining west coast looks unlikely as well, so potentially won't have nearly as much of the network with only first hull, first great western, and first transpennine left.
