I much prefer the older trains to the new stuff that has been introducted over the last few years. Chunky arm rests that don’t move, not much in the way of a head rest – I wasn’t even bothered about not having a plug socket for my laptop. The comfort from ride quality in a mark III coach in my opinion is rather impressive – arguably superior. I’ve been a fan of the old InterCity 125‘s ever since the days of Super Apex Return tickets from Warrington to London for £25! I haven’t been on one for years…maybe 15 years. It was a pleasurable journey from Kettering to Long Eaton.
