As far as I could tell then, I didn’t notice anything strange about it, however, this station was included among “the most dilapidated in the UK” by the Transport Secretary..
It seems that passengers need more seats, cleaner toilets & platforms, car & bike parking facilities, and sometimes even real-time information about the trains..
It’s funny that one of the reasons of dissatisfaction about these stations was that passengers have to wait on wind-swept platforms. Well, at least the wind may take away the bad smells which are so common in Romanian stations :-)
Now seriously, I also witnessed that the huge discrepancy between little stations and big stations in the UK is about the same as in Romania.
Apart from being amazed with the British civility in big stations, be prepared for any nasty surprises in little ones – even stations with no one to ask questions to about your journey!
