Editors’ Notes

Anyone who’s booked train tickets in the UK knows it can be a labyrinthine task. Am I buying off-peak tickets? What is off-peak? What is “super” off-peak? Am I getting the best deal? We were thrilled to have all this—and more—finally made clear as day by a souped-up Trainline app. It’s become as essential to our train travel as a fully charged phone battery.

they are THIEVES- do not buy from this app

There is absolutely nothing good about train line. I accidentally booked my ticket on the wrong date so I refunded a minute late after I bought the tickets, they have a £10 refund policy and I was meant to get my money back within 5 days however I never got my money back in the end.
I payed for a £100 ticket and they never refunded me and stole all of my money. I was already mad about the £10 charge for refunds so I accepted it since I’d get at least £90 back but after 5 days I never got my refund back. So I called them and they said random excuses and told me that due to policies they can only refund me £20 of what I bought 😀. But they couldn’t even refund me my £20 in the end. And after looking at different apps I found that there are much better and cheaper and more trustworthy apps which DO NOT STEAL YOUR MONEY and they do not have a refund charge either which is very helpful. I believe anyone who is using trains apps for the first time should do their research first and be careful with which app they buy their tickets from and they should DEFINITELY NOT BUY FROM TRAINLINE!! Otherwise they’ll scam you.

Winning Winnie!

The journey was so tense and exciting racing in traffic towards my new adventurous life with my honeysuckle betrothed - finally someone who understood every fibre of my being - right down to my love for the very roots of Pooh bear. My heart pulsed vibrantly in my chest until I realised it was my electric toothbrush instead! Every nerve and cell was on edge and yet I could still enjoy zooming on the fast train across 160 miles of beautiful British countryside. Was my story going to end the same, burying my ashes of the past? As I searched the treetops for my titanium strength while my stomach lurched and my heavy chest felt like it was being cracked with a vice like retractor ripping my body apart. The pain was excruciating! How could I survive this? Stepping anxiously onto the bridge I caught his sweet smouldering eyes as they met mine and those dimples simply melted my heart and we zipped into the zip car of love . Trevor Noah - therapy for life! Woohoo! Love you darling!
