  1. Just wanted to repeat what others have said – this site contains very useful information which I have only just found. Keep up the good work. You also seem to be voicing all the same opinions I myself have had about the service and facilities. Well done.

  2. I have just read a recent article in the Daily Telegraph about the awful seats on the Thameslink trains and comments from your association. What an hilarious response from the government! It is not just lack of padding that makes the seats so uncomfortable. The backs provide absolutely no lumbar-sacral support, which makes them so uncomfortable and ergonomically a disaster. I am a retired physiotherapist and I can’t understand how the company came up with such an awful seat design.

  3. @ann We cannot understand it either. It’s not clear who is responsible for this terrible design decision – the train company are saying that it is the government, and the government are saying that it is the train company. Oddly the Rail Safety and Standards Board have said that there are no standards for passenger seat comfort.
