@Baz13631842 @ProgContra @Arron_banks I've just taken a train into London - it seriously wasn't. I train it to/from Manchester and Birmingham frequently. They are rarely "seriously overcrowded" either. Certain peak times, maybe, but no sensibly run organisation budgets for excess capacity at peak times.
@GroomB And what will they do to make sure that (at a guess) 10 million cars can be charged every night?
RT @HistoryTime_: 17 January 1945. Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, who helped Jews escape Holocaust, was arrested by Soviets in Hungary…
@Baz13631842 @ProgContra @Arron_banks Which isn't to say that trains don't have a role to play in any sensible transport network/strategy - I simply question what I see as the fetishisation of public transport, including trains.
@Baz13631842 @ProgContra @Arron_banks People are happy to pay for those "metal boxes" and fund everything they need many times over, and within 10-20 years they will be electric and possibly self-driving; they don't seem very willing to pay the full cost of trains (or buses, for that matter).
