First Great Western announced today that they will be investing in cancelled trains and removed carriages in an effort to keep their passengers warm during cold weather this February and March.
A spokesman for FGW explained "By cancelling popular trains and shortening the number of carriages, we will help more travellers squeeze into a smaller space. The combined body heat and closeness will keep everyone nice and warm during any wintry weather in February and March."
The idea was dreamt up by the customer service department of FGW and is seen as a way of showing customers that their fare increases this year are being put to the best use possible.
The spokesman continued "As well as being helping our customers out, this initiative is also environmentally friendly. Our customers will have the opportunity to view the beautiful snow covered scenery while feeling snug and warm. All the trains will also be supplied with cloths to wipe the condensation from the windows for better views."
