Sipping “a” complimentary glass of wine ?????? Doesn’t sound very generous for $250 !

Bungendore sounds like more fun than Queanbeyan.

But ‘Plunger Coffee’? Arggggghhhhh!

Got an espresso machine at home. But also enjoy my plunger coffee at work. Why the reaction? It’s not bad at all, and way ahead of instead. In fact, it’s better than a significant number of espressos I have bought.

Instant.

What happened to the old Railway Refreshment Room fare?
A meat pie and a scalding hot cup of tea were hard to beat.
Better than all this “fairy food”stuff.

The inevitable diabetes, blood pressure and heart problems made it the “Unhappy Meal”.

If the fairies took your suggestion seriously they could rule out flying.

What exactly do you mean by “fairy food” dungers? You mean restaurant food? Which would seem appropriate for a Valentine’s day special dinner, no? While standard cabin food fare like a pie and tea is all well and good for a normal train ride, that is not what is being offered. I pity your poor wife if your idea of a romantic valentine’s day dinner and train ride is getting a pie and tea from the food carriage.
