We all know the bad things about trains...

  • They can be busy at peak times

  • It can seem more expensive than driving

  • They can have a bad weather day

But there are lots of good things too!

    A lot of trains have Wi-Fi and power sockets.

  • Real time info

    Live departure and timetable information available.

  • Flexi work

    Avoid peak time trains ­for quieter and cheaper travel.

  • Eat, drink and be merry

    Stock up with refreshments at many stations.

  • Often much quicker

    With station parking for bikes and cars, door to door travel times are often much less.

  • So much greener

    On average, six to eight times lower CO2 per passenger than car travel.
