Are they going to tell you "please don't use the toilet when the train is in the station"

I saw the following tweet and thought aye, probably right:

Looks like a cow on Sunday had a greater impact on @Virgin_TrainsEC than today's @RMTunion strike.
Hmmmm

To be fair, if managers were staffing the trains, there won't have been much pen-pushing going on in their offices.
Huge disruption there!

Maybe, but to the people travelling who needed to get where they were going, hardly any disruption, which as people looking from the outside in, is the main issue.

Shocking. The end result could have damaged so many lives.

Safety legislation is in place for a reason.

Just a head's up - apparently the 1830 off EDI to KGX (due 2052) is booked as a class 91 and the website suggests it's running in reverse formation between EDI and NCL. Could be an opportunity to catch a 91 over the High Level.
