Southern Trains relents…a bit

Thanks to the CTC e-news we can report "Following pressure by CTC and others over its strict policing of a peak time ban on bikes, Southern Trains has relented – slightly. It had been insisting that passengers with folding bikes, which are allowed on its trains during peak hours, fold their machines before walking down platforms. Southern has decided to now allow folders to be wheeled down platforms. We hope that this outbreak of common sense is catching and that the company reviews its entire policy on the carriage of bikes."
