    It's like a bus but only goes in two directions.

    I find it more comfortable than the bus or car, or indeed flying. It's my usual preferred mode of travel.

    It's quite nice actually assuming the train isn't full!

    I get on and the geezer says "Tickets please!", so I buy one from him. There's usually a machine at each train station that allows tickets to be bought beforehand, but they are often smashed up from the chavs.

    Usually, they stop at each station that it passes, like how a bus stops at bus stops on that route.

    Trains are completely free.

    Though, sometimes angry men try to sell you little pieces of orange paper, but then you just hide in bathroom until they go away.

    It's really easy to to get away from not having to buy a ticket. Especially on crowded trains.

    Yes! A few of the London underground trains are very comfortable. Some are quite enclosed, which I hate but others are quite spacious.

    Without sounding curmudgeonly, how on earth have you never travelled on a train before?

    I get my tickets for free :confused:


    Whenever someone goes to the bathroom, I just knock on the door and say 'ticket please' and that's me sorted
