Comedy legends Steve Punt and Hugh Dennis bring a new sitcom to Radio 4, set in the claustrophobic carriages of a cross-country rail service.

It's day one of a new franchise and train manager Sam has high hopes for their maiden voyage, even if the new bosses insist her role is to 'enhance the onboard travel experience'. But the marketing team's offer of free coffee for ALL customers soon threatens to derail the smooth running of the service. Meanwhile passengers struggle to escape the clutches of the automatic toilets....

Our heroes are the long-suffering train crew who manage to scrape through every shift like a dysfunctional family - Train Manager, Sam (Rosie Cavaliero) First Class Steward, Gilbert (Kenneth Collard), Catering Manager, Dev (Ali Shahalom) and Trolley Operator Tasha (Amy Geldhill). The passengers are made up of a rolling roster of guest stars, which includes the odd cameo from Punt and Dennis themselves.
