No buffet trolley service now.
Overpriced and limited choice maybe compared to the glorious buffet cars but still, not even a bottle of water can be purchased now on your stifling, stopped for 90 minutes, hermetically sealed waiting room.

Can't smoke on the train anymore, or at the station. Can't buy water on the train, trains are late, cancelled, The commuters lot is soul destroying. Why not move closer to where you work, or work closer to where you live? Why moan on here when you can moan to Southern. I don't care, I cannot change it, but you can, you have a choice of what you can do!

But why should you move or change jobs because of the incompetance of our train "service". People pay a lot of money to travel by train, the cr@p that they get is disgusting.

People commute for one reason - London rates of pay and country living. Simples.

I feel very sorry for the staff - what a shoddy way to treat people. I can believe that the trolley service had become unprofitable, as in recent years fewer and fewer people asked for food or drinks. But it's a shame. Having a cup of tea and a slice of cake on a train was one of life's little pleasures.

If you want tea and cakes go to Sheffield Park, or Horsted Keynes

Well it's a viscious circle isn't it? You set your prices astronomically high so people stop buying, people stop buying and you can't afford to run it when all you really needed to do was cover the cost of one employees wages and your concession, with a reasonable profit in the first place. Service is withdrawn, nobody gets tea and cakes anymore, nobody wins. Take your own sandwiches buy a take away tea or coffee at the cafe on your way.

With the average house prices in Lewes being what they are (234,573 being the average price for a *flat* according to Rightmove today), commuting to London or Brighton might be the only option for a lot of people if they want to live in Lewes. The mortgage options even putting 20k down don't look too pretty on those.
2 bed flats for rent around starting at about 975pcm. How many local jobs are going to pay the kind of money you need to live in Lewes now? How local is local anyway?
So yeah, bring back the trolleys please.
