Railway Eye – the railway blog: European Rail Timetable is a Security Risk – Official

This from UK.Railway on Google Groups…

Once a year I buy a Thomas Cook European Passenger Timetable.

Today tried to buy one from (WH Smiths) Luton branch. They would not sell me one unless I either produced my passport (yeh I really do carry that with me to buy a book) – or some other identification – and even then give personal details.

They said this is now company policy for security reasons.

Is there no end to this hysteria?

How in God’s name did we ever survive the 70s and 80s when the Fenians were on the loose?
