Sheffield to Manchester: I take one of the busiest trains in the wake of Martin Lewis' scathing critique of East Midlands Railway
  • last month
The East Midlands Railway direct service from Sheffield to Widnes by Manchester is a route I enjoy and take at least six times a year. But last week, the money-saving expert Martin Lewis wrote a scathing critique of an EMR-operated trip from London to Sheffield, writing it was packed with 500 people served by one toilet. I filmed my experience on one of the busiest trains out of Sheffield with a more critical eye on what the service provides.
