Time is approaching when I have to make a trip to Manchester, to the Traffic Penalty Tribunal. Normally the journey is a doddle, 2 hours to London (60 miles), 1 hour in London, 2hour 15mins to Manchester.
Not so on the Sunday I have to travel. 2hrs 10mins to London, followed by 5hrs and 4 changes to get to Manchester. (plus the obligatory 1 hour in London). Why is it that Sunday travellers have to face these delays, they are still paying for their tickets?
I understand the need for improvements for the West Coast main line, but why is there only one route to the North west?
