Quite a few of these across the region today.....no hot drinks or toilets - that's a long haul without a pee, although I guess the lack of the former may mitigate the lack of the latter?

07:43 Swansea to London Paddington due 10:34
Facilities on the 07:43 Swansea to London Paddington due 10:34.
Catering is reduced.

Toilet facilities are not available.

Disabled toilet facilities are not available.

Additional Facilities Information
Below freezing temperatures have affected the water pipes on this train. No water is available for catering, and therefore no hot drinks are available.

I presume the "flusher" works would that stop you having a pee?

as the flap just opens into the container tank,why use the trains water when your own pee will do the job

Don't ask me about the number two's though

As a person whose age is affecting his waterworks, I would find a three-hour journey without facilities an ordeal - especially were it to be delayed!

I didn't know that the reason we pee more in cold weather...is nothing to do with muscle contractions......rather it is because we do not sweat in the cold. What is normally lost through the skin in hot weather goes to the bladder instead in winter.

Turn the heating up to tropical heat on metro trains?
