the travel itself is fast, however the train are not reliable they change times when you have been waiting 15 mins, sometime they don't turn up. hardly any staff on there always having problem with the tracks. it's a joke!!

Well, what can I say. Its clean, its fast and its cheap. Well worth using for a night out. Obviously busy during rush hour, but not to worry, there is normally another one about 3 minutes behind
