I commute Stirling – Edinburgh every day which means using the national rail operator here in Scotland ‘Scotrail’ – or ScroteRail as I call them! To say that they are bloody useless is a massive understatement! Trains are either late, overcrowded or simply don’t show up with the reason for the no-show seemingly picked from a long list of random inane excuses, none of which make much sense. In a recent episode, I was told that the reason for the no-show on two consecutive days was the drivers cab heater not working. Its bloody summer FFS!
I hate them with such a passion that I created a twitter account @ScroteRail – abusing them on Twitter gives me something to do while stood up or sat in a luggage rack – or while waiting due to a delayed/cancelled train.
