It's a train operating company operating services out of Fenchurch Street via West Ham and Upminster to Southend and Shoeburyness. What it stands for, nobody actually knows...

I think it is that anyway!

Thanks! I'd never heard of it before; we get a lot of news about the problems on SW trains but C2C is a new one for me. You live & learn!

Where do you live? SWT are quite nice, thanks. I was on a SWT train this morning! DMU, if you wondered. A bit loud and a surprising number of people, on a Bristol Temple Meads service! Southern though...

EMT are run by Stagecoach, like SWT so what is the problem (if it another operator sorry!)?
