Different Trains…

Train pulling in to Blackheath Station

Dear Southeastern Trains,

Do you think that there is any chance you could lay on some long trains during the rush hour?  Every morning I see several carriages worth of empty space along Blackheath’s London-bound platform. I realise that it is really too late to complain, as you’ve already got my £712 for this year, and, for some reason, this doesn’t actually purchase me a seat on your lovely trains, but if you possibly could see your way to putting on a full train or two, it might make our journeys to work a little less sweaty.

Of course, if I don’t like it, I realise that I am free to take my business to one of the many other Train Operating Companies departing from Blackheath to Charing Cross.

Perhaps some sort of Service Level Agreement based on the rules around battery chicken farming could be introduced?

    The good news is you are going to get longer trains through Blackheath. The bad news is you’ll have to wait until 2011.

    Oh yes, I *loved* that moment when the train pulled into Blackheath station only half its normal length and everyone from the far end of the platform had to run and try to cram themselves into an already packed carriage…

  3. The thing is, I don’t want longer trains! The current ones are fine when they choose to stick enough carriages on! The title was a reference to this rather lovely album this:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Different_Trains
