SouthEastern trains enthuse about the wonderful steps

Following on from yesterday’s nonsense, there’s another PR inflected piece of tosh here:

Network Rail Blackheath Station becomes accessible for everyone

But with an added helpful soundbite from those experts in timeliness, SouthEastern trains. Vince Lucas, service delivery director, enthuses:

“For our passengers at Blackheath the completion of this project is a real improvement that they can see for themselves. The station is vital to the local community and encouraging more and more people to use trains has to be a good thing. As with other stations which have benefited from similar schemes, we are sure that more passengers will now start to use the train to get around.”

Yes it’s great Vince. I’m sure I will continue to choose SouthEastern over and above the wide range of other train operating companies available to me from Blackheath station, skipping down the beautifully rendered steps as I do so.

Open Sesame

New lift at Blackheath Station
Temporary Railyway Bridge at Blackheath Station
The Millennium steps have finally been declared fit for human footsteps. People are still using the wobbly Millennium Bridge though. It’s now become a badge of honour, I guess.

The old Puccino’s guys have gone, and so has Classic FM sadly, replaced with something that sounds more like Kiss. No chairs & tables either? The two guys seem friendly though.

The Stannah stairlift (really) is surviving so far, and speaks! Which is nice. The series of comments on the previous post nearly made me spit my coffee out in laughter.
