The Joys of Public Transport

Cockroaches cluster on trains - Telegraph

The average railway carriage is providing a home for up to 1,000 cockroaches, 200 bed bugs and 200 fleas, it has emerged.
A recent survey by Passenger Focus, the consumer watchdog, found that most of the travelling public was reasonably content with the level of cleanliness of their trains.

I don't want to sound like Sir Nicholas but I'm obviously in the minority here.


Is anyone actually surprised at this? I would have assumed there would be more fleas.

With the amount of debris from the incessant "grazing" that goes on when people are travelling, I'm surprised we don't have rats and mice on board never mind roaches.

The situation's no better in theatres.
