@LP – its all well and good for the likes of those able to work out the solution to cheaper train prices – but I think travellers are put off by the opaque costing and inability to search for economic prices…

When the train operators can coordinate the prices and the likes of kayak / expedia & co able to offer discounted tickets to the mass market, I think then passenger numbers will increase.

I look forward to going to my local overland station in north London and spending 6 to 7 hours on a train to Europe, but not when the cost is 7 – 8 times more than flying. I would also imagine once sensible pricing models come in, that the trains will cater for business travel, not just in terms of the seat and catering, but the ability to work effectively with a good internet connection.
