These Twitter Accounts Shamelessly Troll Train Companies

Twitter and train complaints go hand in hand — but have you ever done a double take at a train company's response on Twitter, before realising it's actually a parody account you're reading? There are plenty of them out there, pertaining to be a certain company until you look very closely, and the most amusing exchanges often come out of situations when customers mistake these parody accounts for the real deal. Here are our favourite fake train company accounts in the London area:

Thameslink Twitter parody accounts

Southern Railway Twitter parody accounts

@southern_trains:

Thameslink and Southern trains

Southeastern Railway Twitter parody accounts

We've seen many decent Southeastern parody  Twitter accounts over the years, but it seems Southeastern are particularly vigilant at getting them taken down, as many are now suspended (RIP @Se_Raleway).

Great Western Twitter parody accounts
