South West Trains or Sh*t West Trains?

14 years ago...

Train fairs have exploded!!
Rail fares have gone up well above the rate of inflation – with some tickets going up by nearly 9%.

On SWT the rise is not 3.9% but nearly 9% because they have withdrawn the discount they previously gave because of their poor punctuality. Have timings improved to match the timetable? No - they have moved the goalposts to match what the trains are actually doing.

They have also removed 23% of the seats on the trains but somehow reduced the space in those that are left.
"Thank You for travelling with SWT" they say on arrival at Waterloo every morning - as if we had a choice!
