Chiltern Railways welcome kissing

Following the sad
snogging stoppers at Warrington Bank Quay station, Chiltern Railways have decided they welcome kissing with open arms.

Kissing Welcome at High Wycombe Station

The poster at High Wycombe station above says: "Unlike other train companies, we would never dream of banning kissing at our stations."

In fact they want to encourage love and romance and are running a competition to promote the romance of railways "where fond farewells and emotional reunions take place, where relationships start with a glance and even, in the case of our Marylebone station last November, where one passenger will propose to another over the public address system!"

"To show that we are dedicated to spreading a little love around our stations, we are asking our passengers to send us a photograph of them kissing at one of our stations. From Birmingham Moor Street to London Marylebone, we've got lots and lots of picturesque stations, perfect for that romantic moment."

"The couple in the winning photograph will win free travel to and from London and a romantic champagne afternoon tea at London's exclusive Landmark Hotel. So pucker up and get snapping!"

You've only got till the 3rd of March to get snogging & shooting. Full details of entry are on Chiltern Railways' site.

They've certainly got a point about the romance of railway stations. Even St Pancras International commissioned a statue of a kissing couple for the centrepiece of their station. Good luck to Chiltern Railways as it's a good way of saying one in the eye to Virgin Trains who issued the no kissing zones.
