UK's worst rail service

The grim-start to the year for rail passengers could be prolonged, after staff at one of Britain's biggest rail franchises today voted for industrial-action.
Following a New-Year blighted by overrunning engineering work, and with vital upgrades in Glasgow still incomplete, employees of First Great Western came out in favour of industrial action.
The RMT union said 81% of FGW drivers affiliated with the union had voted to strike, with more than two-thirds of its guards backing a walkout.

RMT general secretary, Bob Crow, said the vote reflected members' anger over FGW's "confrontational style of management" including using managers as part-time guards.
