12 Days of Rail Mess - Southeastern Carol

A group of disgruntled rail commuters gathered at Charing Cross station Wednesday to stage a festive protest about Southeastern trains.

Adam Halall, from St Leonard's, East Sussex, regularly travels on the Hastings to Charing Cross line, and organised the
sing-a-long to an inspired version of The 12 Days of Christmas.



Here's the lyrics in case you couldn't make them out from the video above.

On the 12th day of Christmas Southeastern said to me,
12 hundred stranded
11 porky pies
10 trains are cancelled
9 power failures
8 dodgy heaters
7 flakes are falling
6 dirty toilets
5 broken trains
4 missing drivers
3 signal failures
2 points are stuck
And there's no trains the rest of the week.


A Southeastern spokesman said: "We always welcome all feedback from passengers, in whatever format it may come in."

Hat tip to @BCCletts for letting me know about this.
