    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Its bloody outrageous that you are not running any service what so ever on boxing day. What about those people not celebrating christmas or needing to get to work…babies don’t stop being delivered because it’s boxing day??

    Limited service, sunday service, all fine, but NO SERVICE?? You question why people don’t use the train but get in their cars instead!??

    A very disgruntled train user, who will have to use her car!!

  3. Unsurprised citizen says:

    No service on the majority of lines – This is a typical european response to our ever rising personal requirments of free time ( snow cant be blamed). Time we feel so very important to watch such culturally enhancing television. Lucily our troops are having boxingday off aswell – heaven forbid they work a solid 7 months with not even a minute off. Wait, thats incorrect they are there, working and doing there bloody job for a hell of a lot less money. This country along with our dismal way of life is on its way out to be superseeded by a harder working ethic, namely the chinese, and we will look back in years to come and realise we were to bloody comfortable to see our own demise. Not to mention i now have to run 35 miles to watch the boxingday rugby.If the germans had won the war there would be a train….

  4. JennyBN says:

    pmsl disgruntled i can understand, jesus when i’ve been on the train there seems to be more “foreign” looking employees that i doubt “celebrate” xmas, so i doubt it would be hard to find ppl wanting to work even if it’s just at main stations around the country, but to wish the germans had won just to have a decent train service on boxing day is priceless

  5. johnny says:

    f*ckin outrageous that trains are not running on boxing day, i mean it sums up this f*ckin diabolic sh*tty country in the depths of an economic recession

  6. micky johnson says:

    I TOTALLY AGREE IF GERMANS TOOK OVER ENGLAND OR MAYBE RUSSIA THERE WOULD BE TRAINS…. SAME AS WHEN HEAVY SNOW HITS ENGLAND WE COME TO A F*CKING STAND TILL LOL NO BUSES TRAINS YET RUSSIA HAVE SNOW EVERYDAY SEVEN DAYS A WEEK AND THEY JUSY KEEP GOING GOING GOING JUST LIKE A DURACELL BATTERY LOL NEVER ENDING AND THE GERMANS IN WAR WHEN THEY GOT CAPTURED BY ENGLISH. THEY HAD BEST WARM WINTER CLOTHERS BOOTS MESS TINS THE LOT..WHILE WE JUST FROZE OUT BALLOCKS OFF AND AMERICANS,,,,,,,,,,,,,?

  7. Brian Nothappy says:

    Typical of the lazy workshy public body spongers that litter the building sites that pass for our poxy transport system that they wouldn’t work on boxing day. A bunch of fat, lazy jobsworths will be sat at home with their feet up drinking cheap lager, shouting at the TV about other jobsworths and how they are ‘taking all our jobs’ which the British never do anyway. The sooner this crappy toilet of a nation gets flushed by a superior nation the better.

    This nation is nothing more than one gigantic waiting room, throwing the worlds biggest sicky.

  8. Rail Company Employee says:

    Train companies are not “public” bodies we are private companies (that get subsidies from government, this does not make us public unless farmers are as well), we only “shut down” for TWO days a year we work all other Bank Holidays (and for no extra pay on most contracts), even private soldiers get paid (and rightly so)more than most booking office staff and a Corporal gets far more than most managers (been there and got the badge to prove it), there are few staff that get a “Mega Wage” (most staff I work with earn less than £20,000) and @JennyBN 90% of the staff I work with are “White Christian”.

  9. Unhappy Rail Passenger says:

    No trains to or from London on Boxing Day eh? Well, what can I say, thanks National Rail Services for costing my business a days pay as I intended to be at my desk in the morning of the 27th and will now have to spend the day travelling instead.

    And a Merry Christmas to you too, Rail Companies. I look forward to paying your ever increasing fees to cram into smaller, more over-crowded and less frequent trains in 2012.

  10. Sue de Nimes says:

    Private companies. There we have it. If there were a profit to be made by running trains on Christmas or Boxing Day, they would run …… Just like any other business.

  11. DRJolly says:

    The infrastructure of a country is vital whatever day it is.
    To have no trains operational on Boxing day at the very least if not Xmas day is to hold the country to ransom.
    The rail workers demand more and more money,demand our respect yet teh rail companies fail again to provide the service its customers need. we will never reduce cars on the road while our public transport systems run a 3rd world service.
    Go hang your head in shame.

  12. Iused2Bsane says:

    I’m just so p….d of with these ME ME ME ME ME people. Lets be done with it and shut down hospitals, the police, fire services, merchant ships, airlines, etc., etc., Christmas Day and Boxing Day. In fact bring in a law which makes it illegal for ANYONE to work on Christmas or Boxing Day. Health and safety risk – ban all work. Working week too long – ban the working week!

    Vote for the GROTLOT party and Get Rid Of The Lot Of Them.

    f*cking sh*t bastards

  14. Teresa Young says:

    I work as a cook making sure very frail residents with dementia get fed.I work Christmas day and get Boxing day off but I can’t visit any relatives because there are NO TRAINS!!!!!!!
    How I wish I earned anywhere near $20.000 a year. I can’t afford a car.

    how do i get to gravesend? you can’t, was reply.
    i ended up asking how do i get to waterloo, reply, london bridge is shut, waterloo is open…. how do i get to waterloo then? make your own way there, so i made my own way there using two buses, eventually got to waterloo, to find it had been shut all day!
    i am livid..
    why did the advisor on the information button do that to me?
    he knew it was shut, i will never believe an advisor again.. i had two small kids with me too.
