image for "National Railway Replacement Bus Service Day" to honour Bob Crow
Sneak preview of the new HS2 engine

In a move demonstrated to have more animation than the average commuter on a London Tube strike day, the Rail Maritime and Transport Union have presented a petition to Downing Street to declare the 27th of December "National Railway Replacement Bus Service Day" in honour of departed Union leader Bob Crow.

On that date, all train users will have to use replacement buses when making a train journey. However, in an effort to be socially responsible, the Union has agreed that passengers can choose exactly where they wish to take their bus replacement service.

For example, a passenger traveling on the East Coast Mainline service could elect to alight at Newark and take a bus to Grantham to await the next onward train to complete their journey.

The current Union leadership, many of them paying mortgages, were delighted with the support from members of the public, who in keeping with with their lack of choice when it come to buying cheap train tickets, will have virtually no choice in the matter.
