The hottest place on earth right now has got to be the @FGW train from London Paddington. Literally dying.

First great western trains in this heat are awful. I mean they are shit anyway, but add heat and it turns into death itself

@Just___B Appreciate that, but faults can develop during the day. Also, because it is a busy train it will be much warmer than usual. Jess

Blame the passengers for the faulty air con!
Oh my word, hottest day of the year, packed train, no air conditioning #fgw

Taking the train with @FGW from Reading to Redhill today almost killed me. Carriage well over 40 degrees!! Should be illegal.

@FGW 16.31 Oxford to London no aircon and must be over 40 degrees. Outrageously bad customer service. If we were cattle it would be illegal

I spend nearly £5K a year and @FGW can't even provide decent air conditioning on their trains. I wouldn't mind if they were on time.

First great western really need to get air conditioning on their trains. For you @benjaminmcewen

@FGW fair enough, but £48.50 to spend 2.5hours of my weekend sitting on damp carpet outside a toilet is not exactly ideal.

Crammed, late Sunday train, no air conditioning, toilet doesn't flush. Good job, First Great Western.

@FGW I don't see any senior level folk here nor on the train making the aircon work. Engineers would be more useful.

How to ruin a lovely couple of days in Cornwall travel on @FGW train home. Boiling, packed train currently crawling to London an hour late

So, First Great Western are apparently doing mobile saunas now too.

@FGW on the train to Twyford. All the windows are locked and the air con is non exsistant
— Alessandra Williams (@Aless_Williams) July 14, 2013
@FGW on packed London bound train, in totally unacceptably hot conditions. No air con. Only 3 carriages. Ridiculous.
