@FGW Unimpressed! Missed train due to queue of people trying to get tickets inspected and resulting passenger/staff arguments!

Brilliant plan FGW!!! Wait for people to disembark in slough and reading then check tickets when quiet #fgw-not fit for purpose

Well, Ian, we wouldn’t want passengers blocking the ticket checks! Issuing penalty notices is stressful enough!
Fined for attempting to BUY A TICKET aboard a train, from a platform with no signs, office or machine? Not cool @FGW. Appeal? Oh yes.

Don’t worry Dave! A nice man will be waiting with a policeman and a stack of Penalty Notice forms!
Ticket checking on the #FGW sardine express this morning just to make sure we have all paid dearly for our standing spot, such great value!

Ticket checked twice on same train in 20 minutes. Nice to know @FGW are double checking that I'm being robbed blind for using their service.

In other news, there were ticket inspectors on every train I've got this week. Are FGW's profits dropping or something?!

People get off at Bath for 1st bit of breathing space. What does @FGW do? Send a ticket man squeezing down aisle to collect fares. Classy.

@fgw six revenue inspectors at Windsor and Eton, but no one around to sell me a ticket in the ticket office. Genius!

Wonderful. In addition to a 40 min delay @fgw are now making us queue for 10 min to check our tickets. You can't make this cackhandedness up

Well played, First Capital Connect (who are utterly unrelated to First Great Western)! Well played! You sure showed him!

@fgw Thanks for getting us to Ealing on time. Then delaying us in a cramped pig pen to check we've paid. You really don't like customers?

Careful! You could be fined for that!
