I wonder who will end up paying!!!!! Is this a sick joke? I will tell you what would ease commuter worries, a 25% reduction in all train fares. Perhaps clean trains that ran on time would help as well. Perhaps if passengers were appropriately compensated for late trains, that would go some way to mitigating the stress and inconvenience of travelling by rail. If a train fails to arrive at your destination within........ I'm going to be more than reasonable and say 10 minutes of the schedule you should be awarded a 50% refund. Any more than 15 minutes 100%. That's what would ease my worries.

Surely anything by The Delays would be apt? No? Ok, Ocean Colour Scene's The Day We Caught The Train, then.

I have just come back from Lille, having travelled on the Eurostar.
There was a piano on the platform, & another passenger played delightful music. Definately a good idea.

It wouldn't surprise me if the politician was misquoted or misunderstood when making a joke, but if this IS true, is that politician familiar with the fact that most commuters own some kind of portable music device or have music playback integrated with their smart phone? Meaning that if they wish to listen to piano based music, they CAN.

If anyone wants live music, there are plenty of buskers in the area.

What a waste of money.

As someone pointed out, the lack of pianos is not the issue. The issues are late/cancelled trains and ever rising train fares. Those are the things that stress people out.
