We are currently running trials of our standard class catering offer on a selected number of trains each day, unfortunately, a trolley service may not be available when you travel. Most of the station outlets are now open, offering a wide selection of food and drinks so refreshments can be purchased before boarding the train.
Plugging in your device
You are welcome to use the on-board plug sockets to charge your phone or laptop if they are available on your train. Meridian trains on our London route have one plug socket available for each pair of seats.
First Class upgrades
If you’re travelling in Standard Class at the weekends you can upgrade to First Class for just £12 each way. You’ll enjoy benefits such as larger seats, refreshments (available from the buffet bar when you show your First Class ticket) and quieter carriages.
You can buy your First Class upgrade on the train. Just ask a member of our on-board staff. The £12 upgrade is subject to availability and isn't available if you’re travelling on an Advance ticket.
