[Image taken 1.9.21.] York rail station, York. The First Class lounge. Is this still an appropriate use of space? The ticket office is now tiny. The ladies loos just round the corner has queues even though some people are wary of travelling due to covid and some staff are still working from home. The cycle rack removed from outside the former ticket office will not be replaced either there or outside the relocated ticket office. (An LNER employee described it as "clutter" and said it wasn't used much, which was not my experience.) Why is the class structure of society still being enforced? Why are people travelling in one class being cossetted? Users of the lounge can help themselves to drinks and snacks. Yet this is the class of travellers that can afford to pay for these themselves and/or who are on expenses. And what is the opinion of the businesses that sell food and drink on the concourse/platform who lose sales? Other issues at this station see: #173700 and links.
