I swear that over the last 6 months or so I've seen an increase in the number of loos on trains that are out of order, or at least haven't been cleaned.

A couple of months ago I was on an 8-carriage Southern train where all 4 loos weren't working.

The tracks next to the West Midlands platforms at Euston (as opposed to Virgin and Overground) are "Andrex-covered" in a way not ever seen before.

Dunno why.
I've noticed something similar at Paddington like that, quite foul in this day and age.

As for out of order toilets, Virgin drive me up the wall. Either their crap or they are programmed to lock once they have been used so many times cause I've been on trains where most of them have been out of order. Side tracking but it's all toilet humour related :lol:

More importantly, why are there so few toilets on Virgin's Pendolinos. The trains they replaced had, AFAIK, 4 toilets per carriage. On a Pendolino most carriages only have one.
There are 76 seats in a most dense Pendolino carriage with others varying between 18 and 62. Why does that need more than one toilet?

There are only 'so few' because there were too many before.

I prefer the trains to drop it on the tracks. In this country most trains seem to lock their toilets because they can't handle anymore shit, their tanks are full.

Caught a Northern Rail train from Ashton to Liverpool last year and the toilet was blocked, the pan was brimming full with big floaters. Get them on the track were they belong, theres enough diesel oil dropping on the track to neutralise the smell.

That was on a train that DOES drop onto the tracks.

It was one with the long carriages and end doors that goes over the old LMR.
Yes, which flushes onto the track. Your post suggests that you think it is a train that doesn't and that the tank was full. It was just blocked. I would prefer a toilet with a tank which locks out of use when the retention tank is full that contending a bog full of floaters :)

I prefer the European system where you can actually see the track when you flush.
