Don't get all excited; they're not in the market for a new Chief Exec or anything. No, Merseyrail are touting for public opinion about their trains. A consultation has been launched to find out what people want from their trains when they get refurbished next year.
I didn't even realise they were getting refurbished, so this is quite exciting news. I thought we'd have to continue with what we had until the new trains arrived, somewhere around the turn of the next century. They're concentrating on five areas:
- Internal walls
- Fixtures (for example, bins)
I have drawn up a more detailed plan for the refurbishment, which Maaaaaaarten Spaaaaaargaren is welcome to contact me about any time (click for a better view):
- Private, locked cabin at the front of the train for my own personal use;
- Russell Tovey serving champagne;
- Me, on a throne;
- All the other passengers in a walled off section at the back.
If you have any ideas of your own, you can send them to Merseyrail here. Though obviously they won't be as good as mine.
An alarm that goes off to warn you a speccy has just got onboard would be helpful.
A Spectrum 48k home computer?
RPO! And anyway a Commodore 64 was by far superior.
More fold away seats might come in handy. I always felt bad travelling to Ellesmere Port every day taking the last available bike space when a girl would get on at Birkenhead Central and have to hold her bike by the door for the duration.

DON'T MAKE ME COME OVER THERE AND KICK YOUR ARSE, ANONYMOUS.
