Perhaps the French SNCF is better - I think they basically ignored
the EU requirements.
France has some trains run by private companies, the idTGV. A friend
of mine tried using one and encountered very nasty treatment: the
train was late, and when it arrived, the employee who was supposed to
give him a ticket based on his internet reservation had gone home. He
was fined for not having a ticket.
I call them idioTGV. French people who do not want a UK-style disaster
in France should boycott them and make them go broke.
Meanwhile, France has a nasty policy of asking people's names when
selling them train tickets. That too is something to campaign
