Train versus plane

Everyone in the UK knows about the extreme perverseness of the difference between the cost of train tickets and plane tickets. I have flown to Paris for £20. A train ticket to Cardiff has costed me (well, my company) £200.

It makes it so hard for people to make the environmentally sane choice.

This cute video shows the problem well. I like it — Train v plane: fair fight?

      Haha, I just rewatched this. It’s funny.

      I find Liverpool Street a bit intimidating because it’s so big. Waterloo is the worse, though.

      St Pancras is probably even bigger but because it’s shiny and new, and I don’t need to go through a warren of tunnels like at Waterloo, it feels better.
