And they have the cheek to rise train fares, but provide Victorian technology =p
Why don't they have handles on the inside as well like every other door?
Better question, why are trains with door handles still a thing? I've never seen one in my life, I thought every train door in the country was electronic by now.
Some pre 1980s trains have them.
Heath and Safety. In the days before central locking it would be too easy to accidentally open the door when the train was moving if there was an inside handle.
I think those doors were pretty cool - but didn't know if they were still a thing or not. I think the last time I experienced that was on Great Western a few years ago...

Not in before the trains with sliding doors came in the mid 80s, but people where deemed more responsible for their own actions.

"Ugh, I just don't understand it at all. It sounds like a foreign language!"
"it's... it's Latin, mother..."
"Oh. ... You're going to put that on the internet, aren't you."
I was at Crewe station today trying to buy a return ticket to Liverpool. Except I accidentally bought a single and didn't have time to change. Had to pay £7 more pound back from Liverpool when the difference should have been only 10P
forgot how many letters are in the alphabet
