Presumably the compulsory wearing of masks on board will need to be lifted before any such service can begin?

Especially for the Pullman. I don't see the benefit of wearing face masks on buses when most have opening windows unless it's really busy. As for trains most now have air conditioning, does anyone know if it recycles the air, or like aircraft changes every few minutes?

Staff update regarding the Pullman:

"The Pullman is one of our best kept secrets, and a unique selling point for GWR. As we look ahead to the future of our business, well be focusing more on the leisure and experiences market, so the Pullman will play a big part in our customer offering. Implications around the pandemic are presenting obvious problems with running the service as we knew it before, but we are exploring options, and its on our list of things to bring back safely as soon as we can."

I'm looking forward to it, although not the 72 bill  Grin

I believe a trial later in the week of a trolley service will be taking place on a WoE train.

A business that keeps its Unique Selling point secret. How novel! Has anyone told the Marketing Department?  Roll Eyes
