The soothing sounds of the train on tracks lulling me to sleep while there’s power conveniently placed near by to charge my devices.

Boris P.July 25, 2023

Extremely punctual and staf organised the commuters well to at the respective terminals before going down the Lines to board the train. The driver to Boston today, 11.7.22 on our 6.50am train was very engaging in his announcements and a chirpy guy.
