Rowley C

Travelled with AWC from Euston to Birmingham and back. Ok, I went first class, but I was very impressed. Train was clean and tidy, staff pleasant, helpful and competent, journey swift and on time, food really nice. I travel a lot, but not much by train (usually suffer Southern if I do) so this as an absolute revelation. It felt as though people had really tried and I wish to acknowledge that.
