I have come to the conclusion that for the foreseeable future, train journeys between Brum and the Smoke in either or booth directions should be avoided on Saturdays and Sundays. What should be a 90 minute trip currently takes 150 minutes or more and life is just too short.

Having said that, doing the alternative Snow Hill - Marylebone route does have the advantage of prettier countryside and relatively fewer travellers.

It's still longer than 90 minutes though.

2 Hr 15 minutes each way last night - and I don't think the Chiltern ones run that late. I think a couple of people got ejected at Milton Keynes yesterday for having Silverlink only tickets - they'd have been in for a 5 hour wait for the first train they could get too.

I hate that whole Silverlink/Virgin thing. The Virgin trains are imho not worth the extra spend, except that they are more frequent and take less time, but they are also ridiculously priced. I think it's ridiculous that transport is so appalling between the 2 biggest cities.

Or indeed between any city.
