IconAisles and seats were clean and comfortable
IconSufficient equipment available
IconNo delays and no changes
Contra
IconHigh capacity utilisation and noisy atmosphere
IconAir conditioning failed
IconToilets unhygienic
IconNo catering facilities available
This train was very full and therefore also very hot. It was also far too loud on the train. When I pointed this out to the staff, they told me that the air conditioning had broken down. Despite this, the staff were very competent and helpful to the passengers. As it was a suburban train, there was no snack machine. The toilets were also very unhygienic. On the other hand, I found the seats and aisles very clean. The seats were also very comfortable and the train had power sockets and an internet connection.
