Big up for Chiltern Railways Silverlink £27.50 return to london on the day, free wifi, nicer carriages than virgin would take 1hour 40 minutes
Im only going to Warwick parkway. But its empty, the decor is muted and tasteful. its relaxing and it doesnt smell like a horrible virgin train.......wow! please use em if you can, Chiltern railways should get a knighthood. It uses Moor street 7 minutes walk from new street, but a lovely station compared with new street, and goes to marylabone, which is just as easy to get to places as from euston if you are using the underground.
I know Im going on.....but when its this much nicer and cheaper, it really reflects badly on the virgin service.
