@FGW not really good enough is it, lets hope the lack maintenance is not going to pay again all summer long

Lol! Read on!
The National Shortage of Rolling stock strikes again!

Well done, #teamhopwood! Weeks of Network Rail rebuilding the Dawlish train line, and then Dodgy Norman strikes!

Maintaining the current trains would be a great start!
Oh @FGW you excelled yourself tonight. 1st train cancelled without explanation (even though it was there). 2nd doors break. 3rd delayed.

@fgw why do your trains keep breaking down we hear it time & again. Suggestion: spend some money fixing em instead of flashy advert posters

.@FGW also to let you know this carriage has no power, lights or air con. It's the delayed 1757 from Padd. Too late for us but save others

@FGW 2 broken down trains in a row & zero announcements! Your twitter is the only reason I know what was going on. You've wasted my evening.

@fgw great service guys. Throw an entire train of people off the train at hayes and harlington. Well done, top class customer service

You can rely on First Great Western to compound every bad situation, Bob!
@fgw A train fault on this train? So it isn't faulty enough to have a problem getting to Slough but is too faulty to go further?
— iwishihadaspacebar (@spacebar69) June 17, 2014
@FGW another fault on another train 0840 from yatton to paddington – regularly maintained ???
— Alison Marrs (@Alison_marrs) June 14, 2014
A fault with one of your trains, for which you are responsible, again @FGW? I make that five days out of last seven this has happened.

@khalleth Hi Tom. Apologies, this train was late starting due to a train fault. It is having to fit around the timed services to PAD. Grant
— First Great Western (@FGW) June 13, 2014
Just throwing that into the mix! Just run a search for FGW train faults. My word!
“@FGW: Morning. This service is currently being delayed at Westbury due to a fault on board. We'll give an eta as soon as we know. Jo” thks

Stuck in a train with broken brakes in front of paddington station. Not what you need on a Wednesday morning. You are useless @FGW
— Jose Luis Cantarero (@indeleble) June 18, 2014
@FGW Not a great start to the day, no seat, that's normal. Bag soaked from toilet water in the vestibule area 😷😝 Joy of joys.
— Mary (@MaryNoidea) July 1, 2014
@FGW two failed trains so far from Paddington . Any chance the third can get me back to Reading. Tonight? Not best pleased.
— Katherine Chapman (@KathChapman) June 25, 2014
Another epic @FGW commute. Delayed last night, broken down train tonight. Now crawling out of London at snails pace. #1800

@FGW hot, overcrowded, expensive and now running at restricted speed because the train's broken. Thank you, I wanted to get home late anyway
— Sarah Swaysland (@sarahsways) June 13, 2014
@FGW Yet another train fault on the 17:41 from BTM to Gloucester. I am sure the regular maintenance would of picked this up though!!
— Richard Cropley (@Richcropley15) June 25, 2014
@FGW 13.26 Cardiff to London = late-running, dirty, overcrowded, no air conditioning & all toilets either stink, or are broken. Take a bow.

@FGW I have a great idea: why don't you do your maintenance BEFORE the train starts the journey?
— Erica Mawer (@eribarb) August 6, 2014
@FGW signal problems causing standing into Paddington. Broken train trying to leave Paddington. Besides twitter, what works in FGW?
