XC why such significant delays whilst waiting at stations? 15 minutes waiting at Derby then arrive at Birmingham station to be advised the train won't be departing for another 25 minutes and passengers can disembark to get drinks etc. Journey is already long enough and this doesn't help....

Sorry to hear about your recent delay to your journey. We know how important punctuality is to our customers and work very hard to deliver this. Unfortunately without knowing your full journey details we are unable to tell you the reason for your delay.

XC well checked my train tomoro darlo to Plymouth found it had been cancelled next train an hour later would take 10 more hrs to get there why didn't someone tell me?

Please accept our apologies regarding your cancelled journey. Regrettably many services that week were affected by the recent storms causing flooding and damage to signalling.

Xc. Again no reserved seat information on screens above seat. Train packed and loads standing. Coventry to Manchester 17.28.

Sorry to hear about your recent journey with us. The seat reservation system is usually reliable and we have implemented improvements with the trains' manufacturers. Your seat reservation would still have been valid on the train and the staff on-board are able to help and offer advice if need be.

XC not at all impressed with 1st class- train late, full of non first class passengers - why did I pay 190!

Sorry to hear that you were not impressed with first class on your recent journey . Regrettably many services that week were affected by the recent storms causing flooding and damage to signalling, resulting in some crowding problems. Our Train Managers are empowered to allow Standard ticket holders to use First Class in exceptional circumstances to ease crowding.

Xc, is the service always this bad that it takes over 60 minutes to get from Cheltenham spar to Bristol temple meads?

Sorry we weren’t able to offer our usual fast journey to Bristol on 14 March. Regrettably many of our services that day were delayed because of the large number of people travelling to and from Cheltenham for the Gold Cup race.

XC My train is massively delayed due to signalling faults. Could you at least make the wifi free in these situations to ease the pain?

We apologise for the disruption caused to your journey. When there are major problems with the railway we work with Network Rail and other train companies to plan the best means to ensure everyone can complete their journey. Unfortuantley we can not provide free WiFi on board in times of disruption.

XC First Class service can be improved if train staff clear the tables when they walk past. Basic catering college skills would improve the 1st class experience massively.
