What a load of absolute bollocks. Angry They don't have a clew what they're talking about. If they actually got on the services they "investigated" they would find the reason why ihatefirstgreatwestern hate FGW (First Great Western). They produce a video with no research into the subject. These people are trying to make a difference to how lousy FGW are and then stupid false videos like this are produced showing them as criminals.

I like the way we were said to hate staff, what crap. My photo was uploaded to the actual blogspot site without my permission, for which I am really not happy about

Hmmm ... provocative video.   But then the use of the word "hate" has always worried me as being provocative too, and to some extent the people in the group must expect to get as they give.

That certainly didnt please me either Jim. We support the staff and feel for them greatly with what they have had to put up with as well as the passengers. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but it was a very one sided report. Wasnt done by a friend of Alison's by any chance was it?  Cheesy

Two of them Jim and Daniel are just a couple sad train spotters. Daniel I once seen running up and down the Midland Mainline HST (High Speed Train) set on loan to Virgin Trains in his Midland Mainline uniform thinking he was a member of staff.

What a sad bunch of nobodies!!

Well if your Jim in the video then I am sorry to say this matey " If you travel around the railway network in a Wessex Trains anorak pretending to to be a member of train crew then you are a SPOTTER! " I wouldn't think for a moment that you are an employee as I've never seen a member of staff offer a ticket ( a staff travel pass maybe) to a guard when asked before!

I do accept what your saying, but I must say, I was travelling on a full valid ticket, and have never been in-valid!

I have only twice actually worn my Wessex Coat out, both times doing trips that required extremally warm clothing, for which it is perfect.

I do indeed now see how idioticly damnright sad I looked, but please, enthusiast not spotter, I don't have a notepad and pen.

In all fairness the MML» (Midland Main Line. - about) bloke is wrong as they exist. Wessex Trains don't.

Hmmmmmmmm in Jim's defence there's a difference between him going around in a Wessex coat and the other kid going around in full MML uniform! Anyone who goes around wearing a full railway uniform when they don't even work on the railway is just SAD! A coat is almost excusable!
