My first journey by Virgin East Coast
Virgin Rail has recently taken over the franchise of the East Coast and I've now had my first journey with them. Not a great deal to report. The trains were the same though the loco was rebranded with the Virgin logo and colours. Generally, all went well. The delay on the way to London was the result of a trespass on the line, hardly Virgin's fault. Return journey went like clockwork. The significant difference seems to be an absence of train guards.
The only fault I can find is that the food from the buffet car was astronomically expensive. The following tea and bag of crisps cost £2.95!
