Still hot

For the last two days I’ve been on trains with heating on at 0740 in the morning. Granted, it has got cooler outside, but nowhere near needing heating on the train for those appropriately dressed for outside temperatures.

I also got myself a point and click thermometer to measure temperatures, to verify temperatures in the carriage, as well as the temperature coming from the heaters.

I’ll keep this short, and post what I wrote to Southeastern tonight.

When they respond, I’ll update this further

For reference, the initial response, with my commentary is here

My response to Southeastern


Following up on your response dated 7th August (Ref: 809273), I would like to make the following points:

With this in mind, as well as your environmental commitments (http://www.southeasternrailway.co.uk/about-us/sustainability/environment/) could you please consider lowering the set point of your heating on the train to 18C for the sake of the health of your passengers, as well as the planet?

As with previous correspondence, unless explicitly stated in your response, I will share this with on my blog - this message to you will be at www.philrogers.me/0820a shortly.

I also invite you to read www.philrogers.me/0817a which has been read by over 100 people so far, a few of which have engaged with me via twitter.
