Gallery Of Shame

There now follows some of the more – interesting – photos from First Great Western customers. Please be warned that some of these photos are quite unpleasant. However, in the spirit of supporting the cat, some of the more extra yucky images will not be posted.

Sorry ladies and gentlemen, if you pardon the pun.

Roll up! Roll up! See the amazing disintegrating carriage to get things started!

Theo sent us these photos from the Bristol Temple Meads to Cardiff service on 13 Nov 2012. We think it was the 17:21 service.

Theo writes: “I saved a guy from getting this panel right on to his head and then he had to hold it up pretty much until Newport. The last picture shows the root cause – they just hadn’t bolted it on! Talking about criminal maintenance negligence here, imagine taking this full-force head-on.”

Poor show, First Great Western. Very poor show. And some very lucky passengers. Health and safety at work, I think you’ll agree.

Was Dodgy Norman responsible?

Cat was under 1 year old when Cat learned to clean up afterwards. However, Cat didn`t have a cleaning team.

Even the cat knows to use the litter tray. Yes, that`s the wee wee train.

But look! The issue was reported that morning, so must have been resolved later that day, right? Right?

Bad luck, First Great Western. Worse luck for your passengers. How well was the issue reported then? Read the tweet, reply, then delete?

Whoops. Slight problem finding the platform?

Never mind. These things must be very rare.
