While I’ve never been a big fan of flying, if there’s one mode of transport I could commit to for the rest of my life, it’s trains.
From the hustle of the stations and the rush of immediacy as you board, to the scenic offerings as you hurl past cities into the countryside, I just can’t get enough of them – which is handy, considering I have a two-hour round commute on trains six days a week.
As our train back to London Euston from Manchester on Easter Sunday was slightly longer than our way out, we opted to upgrade to First Class seats for an extra £15 each. This upgrade fare is only available on weekends, but boy is it worth doing.
What do you get with First Class?
- Roomier, reclining seats for a little snooze
- Free WiFi
- Plug sockets for electricals
- A table
- Free teas and coffees
- Free snack box containing chocolate, crackers, pretzels and biscuits
- A light on each table
