More of a public service announcement than anything else, but CrossCountry's train ticketing seems to be completely fucked at the moment. Found TrainSplit a necessity to actually travel at all.

Also, if you've not heard, about a third of their rolling stock permanently stinks of other people's warmed over piss and shit.

I remember using them pre-pandemic and their trains were always rammed, they never put on enough carriages. Five carriage trains were the norm which is laughable given the stations they stopped at.

They bought up a lot of old Virgin trains, and came up with the brilliant wheeze of spacing the seats more closely so that the same number of passengers fit on fewer carriages. High speed knee torture devices.

And I wondered if the extremely limited ticket releases were an irritating, but understandable, attempt to control how full their trains are now.

But then why can I buy three separate tickets covering exactly the same journey?
