No, it should be FOUR join broadgage for lunch, dogs are not allowed in the restaurant, poor Timmy, he looked so sad being left out.
Likewise, FOUR complain about the seats, dogs not being allowed on the seats, they would have no grounds for complaint.

"Four find inflatable camping cushions so useful on the train. Timmy had one also, but it burst when he bit it."

A proper intercity train has a minimum of 8 coaches, gangwayed throughout, with first at one end, and a full sized buffet car between first and standard.
It has space for cycles, surfboards,luggage etc.
A 5 car DMU (Diesel Multiple Unit) is not a proper inter-city train. The 5+5 and 9 car DMUs are almost as bad.

My wife swapped mine for one she bought in a joke shop. So embarrassing.

If they had a buffet shop they could sell cushions and make a fortune. No room on trolley!!

Btw from Autumn this year a £20 million 'surfing lake' opens just outside Bristol within reach of several stations including Bristol Parkway (but don't take your surfboard with you!). It's similar to Wales' 'surfing lake' in North West Wales but with newer technology and apparently a third 'surfing lake' is planned for North London in 2022. Please see links below:
