Mark, who is a regular at Blackpool's Viva showbar and who is due at the venue again at its Comedy Station night on June 16, makes fun of the franchise operator for its rebrand when it dropped the rail aspect from its name.

It followed his own train misery at the hands of the operator which is currently struggling with cancellations and delays across the Fylde coast, to Preston and Manchester and beyond.
