First Great Western have signed up a "poet on the platform". Read the full story here on the BBC website.

What will they think of next to attract punters? Trains which run on time?

Hardly an original idea is it? Poor commuters in the South Yorkshire area had to suffer the "bard of Barnsley" a few years ago on services. Perhaps if they want to win favour with commuters FGW could cut the garnish and try to provide a reasonable level of rail service once in a while. Interesting idea there FGW and decent service in the same sentence.

Presumably commuter numbers will show a sudden dip around August 14th to 17th in the following areas then.....
Reading, Oxford, Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Barnstaple, Paignton and Plymouth stations.
Wonder how much they're paying her for this.
