East Midland Trains
Advantages: Cheap day returns..
Disadvantages: Noisey travel..
Last weekend my family and I decided to take a trip in the east midlands trains to Nottingham..
Prices on these trains from Boston to Nottingham was only £6 return each which is so much cheaper and easier than driving and to be fair more relaxing knowing you don't have to worry about getting to your parking space and out of the car park in time..!
So to be fair these trains in an economy seat are not made to be the most comfy thing, you get what you pay for as they say.. And that is just what you get..
There is four sets of table seats in each carriage and if you get one as a family of four as we were than you are lucky because mostly one person takes four seats.. Which is a little selfish I think..
However.. The trains themselves run on time from Boston to Nottingham they leave dead on time or a few minutes before and stop of at the designated stops at around the right times.
The noise on the trains can be a bit unbearable at times it is quite loud and usually slightly bumpy even though the tracks are fairly even.. Except when you get to Grantham you do feel like the train is about to fall off the tracks as you go round a tight bend!!
The ticket ladies are somewhat bored looking of walking up and down platforms every stop but that's their job..!
Summary: Cheap days out if you don't midn a bit of noise..
