Volo onboard TV
As you may be aware First Great Western has recently been rolling out the new 'Entertainment Class' across its HST sets. This uses the Volo TV system, much like is found on planes. it offers a wide range of programs and films along with being able to track the trains location and many other things. Indeed the new Coach Bs do look very smart with these running the length of the carriage.
FGW say that it is free the first time you use it though thereafter you will have to pay extra on your ticket to sit in Coach B. But it definitely has made rail travel, that bit higher class and has brought the HSTs that bit further into the 21st century. Shame to think that they will start disappearing in just a few years time now.
