  • Someone at Virgin Trains has a sense of humour - They are employed as rescue locomotives (so called "Thunderbird" duties) ... locomotives are named after characters from the TV series "Thunderbirds" - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Rail_Class_57#Virgin_Trains [wikipedia.org]

  • Usually there is this irony that the Internet service is little better than the paper timetable, with an instruction to check for engineering work changes by making a phone call. Daft.

    Furthermore, if you do phone them while waiting for somebody to answer your call you are bombarded with the suggestion that you can avoid the phonecall by checking train times online!
