its £30-£45 to get to London or SE England by train which is way too expensive. It was only about £10-15 when British Rail existed, and normally every weekend one bit of the electric cables what power the trains are being worked on so you have to get a bus in essex anyway.
I think next time the unions strike they should run the service but put all the ticket collectors on strike and let everyone go on the train for free (this sometimes happens in foreign nations!) but I have a nasty feeling that under thatcho’s laws the workers could actually get arrested for fraud or theft if they did this…
