Virgin Trains to give out 2,000 presents to passers by

Virgin Trains will be handing out 2,000 gifts to passengers at two of Britain's largest train stations in a bid to spread Christmas cheer.

A replica of the iconic Azuma train, which is made up of 1,000 presents, will be unveiled at King's Cross station on Tuesday (Dec 13th) and the Pendolino train at Birmingham New Street on Thursday (Dec 15).

Gifts include Ipads, pamper days, and chocolate

Noticeable that Virgin only consider Christmas cheer is deserved by London and Birmingham and Northeners, Welsh, N Irish and Scots do not deserve a treat - really good customer relationship building and company branding - possibly a real loss leader.

I wonder what SW Trains would give their customers ?

Guardless trains....... Mind the doors!!!

from up here NE you are all southerners

how about vermin do something for the less pampered stations like Manchester, Leeds or even Wigan?

And the winner gets a full page spread of them on cctv, in a newspaper of their choice.

Virgin - 'what do you mean, data protection?'

Local freebie.

What's that seats?

Well they certainly beat Southern Rail who seemingly thought the 12 days of Christmas referred to the number of strikes they would have to screw over their passengers even more.

The winner will receive a rubber mat to make sitting on the floor more comfortable

They aren't going to do anything for Northern Ireland as they do not operate any services there. Trains in Northern Ireland are nationalised.

Probably more chocolate than ipads & pamper days.

Thanks for sharing the info.

they don't run any trains in N Ireland and barely anything in Wales

Wouldn't it be better to offer a national discount on their prices so everyone could benefit

How many times are the same people going to walk past?!

Giving out presents at xmas at probably their two busiest stations. Terrible company.

I wouldn't think too many unless they have the whole day to waste. When I walked past yesterday, there were over 200 people queuing up. Probably took over an hour to clear that lot. Sadly, I didn't want to miss my train, so no gifts for me.

As a daily commuter in Birmingham they can keep their gifts I would just like a seat occasionally

That's what companies like Virgin don't understand. All customers actually want are punctual trains and a SEAT! Anything else is just smoke and mirrors trickery. I.e. Stuff your presents Virgin and please concentrate on providing a proper train service.
