More Trains Less Strain

Commuters in Gloucestershire are going on a fare strike. In a protest at the unreliability and chronic overcrowding on the Bath to Bristol service, run by our old friends First, protestors will be
offering a fare strike ticket - essentially a fake ticket with which to say 'up yours' to the cretins at First.
And more power to their elbow. I hope it's a roaring success and that the idea can be deployed elsewhere. The problems on this section of line do sound a lot worse than the daily misery First subject Transpennine Express users to, but I'd be up for a similar do.
