Hi,

I'm wondering if any of you could tell me what kind of things to expect when you are travelling first class on Virgin Trains. I'm going next week and was wondering if anyone could give me some ideas of what to expect.

Thanks for your help

I suppose if its a shorter journey you're less likely to get scallies, but you hardly get scallie son longer journeys anyway as must have never been out of their home town apart from Ibiza or Ianapa (however you spell or pronounce it).

You also get a bit more leg room, but I am 6.1ft and find the leg room in trains more than ok.

You get complimentary coffee, tea, water and biscuits and more room on the seats so you can relax more. Thats pretty much it

I've looked it up for myself now.
It depnds where you are going. If you are traveling from London (Virgin West Coast) you geet a breakfast in the mornings and hot snaksa dn drinks at all other times. You aalso get leg room and an headset for the audio (assuming you're not in a mk3 set).
On Corss Country (i.e most other trips) you get a snak box and unlimited hot and cold drinks, as well as the headset.
You can also make use of the first class lounges at major stations.
