Expected[edit]

I see that this page has started to be edited by neo-nazi (presumbably American) people - they control Wikipedia and I cannot do anything about that

The simple fact is that my fellow Americans need to be informed that train travel in the UK is normal and incredibly popular. What do you idiots want? An American to rent an automobile in the UK at a thousand dollars a week, without knowing that rail travel is normal and usual in the UK???? You total self-centred dumb-assed right wing freaks - face up to it (although you never will) that public transportion is regarded as a GOOD THING in Europe. You red-necked assholes need to get a life. (by 92.41.81.253 15:57, 23 March 2015)

I think that we would be better to stick to the facts, and refrain from loads of comparisons with the US. Readers may be coming from countries with better rail networks like Germany or Japan. AlasdairW (talk) 17:27, 23 March 2015 (EDT)

Page created[edit]

Hello, thanks for the clicking the discussion. I have taken the step of creating this page because I have received a number of comments from Hospitality Club visitors and a number of questions from Wikitravellers about my area of knoweledge - the UK's train system. I feel it is worthy of its own topic page because of the confusion caused by different (and often competing) train companies. Please allow me to start this stub and welcome your contributions before it is considered for deletion or relocation. Thanks Jamesbrownontheroad 05:35, 28 January 2009 (EST)

Ah, the good old British rail network... The number of hours I spend on it :) Will do my best to help with this page as I agree it can be confusing! Nrms 05:38, 28 January 2009 (EST)

Page rating[edit]

Although I've been one of the dominant contributors to this page, I hope that the rating of "guide" is accurate. I'd appreciate other user's input, especially if you feel that rating is not accurate. I've tried to follow the Wikitravel rating guide for travel topics. Jamesbrownontheroad 12:27, 3 March 2009 (EST)

It seems to me that this is at guide-status; it's a very complete and well-written article. --Peter Talk 15:35, 3 March 2009 (EST)
I enjoyed reading the article, and it is very comprehensive. One suggestion for improvement - are the wikilinks to the London airport stations, the best things to link to, I would probably expect to click on them and get a link to the airport info? --Inas 16:26, 5 March 2009 (EST)
Great article - the rail network in this country can be confusing enough for those of us that live here! Well done. Tarr3n 04:00, 29 April 2009 (EDT)
Yes, I also enjoyed this article! Although not a train 'geek' I do enjoy rail travel anywhere.--Whitefox (talk) 03:47, 21 November 2013 (EST)
