A sad goodbye to railway dining cars

Sad news reached me via Twitter this weekend – the very last restaurant car has trundled the East Coast mainline.

It was just one of the reasons which made the East Coast the best train operator for customer experience in my opinion – the chance to escape the humdrum of a long-journey and the tyranny of pre-packaged tasteless sarnies.
