Why are UK trains so bad yet so expensive?
When I visited Japan I was taken aback. I literally remember thinking to myself (at least in terms of train technology) they are 50 years ahead. The trains are clean and NEVER late. And they are probably half the price to boot. As long as you avoid downtown Tokyo during the morning and evening rush hours, I cannot think of anything negative about them.
Why can Japan get it so right but the UK gets it so wrong?
