I smiled when I first read these comments as I rarely use the station but I did this morning and there they were, 3 of them, chatting away and having a right old laugh, sipping their tea and basically getting paid to do nothing. There must be a reason they are there, seriously, what is it? Security? If someone hove into view with wires sticking out of a rucksack which they then abandoned by the ticket machines, would these jovial rail company employees leap into action? Would they put their tea down first? They are obviously supposed to be there - does anyone know why?
