In recent months there have been a lot of posts on this forum knocking the CrossCountry franchise. A fair few from me admittedly. Cheesy

In the spirit of offering a balanced view, may I direct forum members with a Facebook account to this page:

Can't quite work out whether it is an official page, but it does seem to be generally pro CrossCountry. So much so that a negative post of mine was removed.....

Former FGW/GWR regular passenger. No more. Despicable company.

It looks official, although "Crosscountry" never replies to any posts holding the TOC to account (such as "are the HSTs coming back", etc.)

You can find out more about how this forum works [here] - that will link you to a copy of the forum agreement that you can read before you join, and tell you very much more about how we operate. We are an independent forum, provided and run by customers of Great Western Railway, for customers of Great Western Railway and we welcome railway professionals as members too, in either a personal or official capacity. Views expressed in posts are not necessarily the views of the operators of the forum.

As well as posting messages onto existing threads, and starting new subjects, members can communicate with each other through personal messages if they wish. And once members have made a certain number of posts, they will automatically be admitted to the "frequent posters club", where subjects not-for-public-domain are discussed; anything from the occasional rant to meetups we may be having ...
