When I bought my tickets today from Crewe to Euston I was made aware that due to track work there was no direct trains, so a 1:50 journey was to take 3:30.

I decided then to upgrade to first class, since it would be quite a long trip.

Big mistaque !!!! Not only I paid all that extra money, I paid it to travel standing up 🙁

The bloddy train was so full from Birmingham onwards I had to stand up and shut up, despite the fact the majority of people in 1st had standard tickets, the entire train had been downgraded, so no free seats anywhere.

I just wish I had know it before I paid extra.
