Crosscountry's four coach Voyager sets. Always overcrowded, toilets stink, reservations often not working, and not enough space for luggage.

GWR's dodgy fares that are higher for A-C than A-B + B-C.

The now generally becoming accepted term 'train station' that the media push. I'm in my 40's and have always used railway station, rail station or just plan station. Perhaps in america you need to tell the difference between bus and train but when somebody mentions station here, we all think railway, so the 'train' in front of it is unnecessary.
This post was inspired by the BBC.

Most of the signage at Reading Station (fixed and passenger information, except the one above the information desk in Brunel Arcade)

The flooring on the over bridge there which turns into a skating rink when it gets wet

1)Connections in train running order, on the automated announcements and not alphabetical order
change here(at Swindon) for Cheltenham Gloucester Kemble Stonehouse and Stroud.

2) Human beings announcements
your next station stop is  HuhHuhHuh,its not my stop its some one else's stop.

and the WE will be calling at A B C D E,I might only be going as far as C

Correct announcement should be THE next station stop is HuhHuhHuh?

3) Travel information about the Underground on local? trains making their way North away from London

4)Why do all the doors on the Underground trains have to opened?
I can understand it when its commuter time,but not when its not very full as well as cold, damp, wet outside
and all that heat in the train being whooshed out in just a few seconds.

Keep Guards on the train. Both so many jobs at risk, as well as passenger safety.

We should be aiming towards a country where no matter where you are you can get around all day with an easy to use, affordable and modern transport system.

'Our next destination is......' You cannot have a next destination. Destination is final. I have a destination, but the trains destination may be different.



'We are now arriving into......' You cannot arrive into, you can only arrive at. Approaching would be a better term to use.

Presumably you mean that DOO should be in travel room 101, not the guards  Huh

[pedant]I would argue that ... take the 07:09 from Portsmouth Harbour
"Our destination is Brighton
it becomes the 08:59 from Brighton
"Our next destination is Great Malvern"
it becomes the 14:50 from Great Malvern
"Our next destination is Weymouth"
from whence it goes into the Jersey Sidings ... arguably the final destination of the day

The only way to get him into room 101 is to give him instructions on how to find room 100.

TOCs that are incapable of managing their workforce efficiently enough to prevent Sunday services being decimated on a regular basis.
