      • "Cramped train Carriages"

      Hull trains is a service that runs between Hull and Londons Kings Cross 3-4 times a day. Its only 2 years only but, judging by the overcrowded trains, the best way of getting to Hull, and the cheapest. With a young Persons railcard, an open return costs £30 compared to £48 with GNER (and then you'll probably have to change at Doncaster to one of Arriva's nasty 'Bus-trains'. Its a fairly punctual service, which takes about three hours to complete. Stops at Grantham, Doncaster, Selby and Brough. The trains always have a buffett desk serving drinks, snacks and sandwiches. Dont plan on having your dinner there! The service attandants are helpful and polite, and always to hand. You can always find one hanging in front of the train before departing which is very helpful. All in all reasonable, but with one grudge- those trains are simply too small! Its a very new (and clean) train, but it has small seats that would make an osteopath very rich. Thats assuming you can get a seat because the service is always so overcrowded. So booking a seat is very important- and get ready to fight for it if someone claims its theirs (this always happens). Dont get a table seat as then the person sitting in front of you will think you are trying to seduce them- no-legroom you see. Then there is the bumpy ride, not Hull Trains fault as such (although its less apparent in GNER trains) made worse if you spill coffee over your lap. And then there is the sobering speed restriction when going through Potters Bar very slowly. Still, in spite of its faults, if you book your seat you'll save alot of cash (make sure you buy a HULL Trains only ticket) over using GNER, and its much more convenient.
