celebrities endorse train travel

Over the past week or so, a few famous people have been vocal in their support of train travel.

Rio Ferdinand can be seen here using a Virgin Trains service from Manchester to London and saying 'I love traveling on the train - it's nice and easy. You can get up and have a stretch.'

Actor John Barrowman appeared on the Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Chris Moyles last week and praised the service between London and Glasgow, whilst Manchester City (perhaps the world's richest football club) were taking the train back after their game against Fulham in London yesterday.

Not sure about you but if I was running one of the TOCs in question, I'd be working mighty hard to see if these sort of 'endorsements' had any promotional legs.
