People tend to check in during these times:
The new station is really nice, so much daylight, clean and a nice Starbucks.
Despite this being a brand new station, there's nowhere to buy a beer or a wine. Pretty poor planning considering the amount of time London Midland strand passengers here, due to terminated trains.
Can't wait for the new station to open.
Lots of building going on and drop-off parking is to the rear.
The caramel latte from pumpkin cafe is decent enough as are the ham and cheese and cheese and tomato toasties!
Book your tickets on line in advance and they will arrive the next day by mail at no extra cost
The new station looks like it's going to be such an improvement to its current state http://www.northamptonstation.co.uk
Glad to be almost home
Enjoy mountaineering? You'll love the new temporary stairs to get to platforms 3 & 4!
If you have a London Midland Train with Blue Seats these are by far the most comfortable. Individual tables and a number of seats with Extra leg room. In addition they have seats with communal tables
Temporary bridge to platforms 2/3 now in place. Ridiculously tall. Seriously so!
Get off for a cigarette!
They are investigating where the Northampton castle use to be many years ago, before they will be a new train station
Enjoy the changing of the guards...as in train guards because you'll be stuck on a London Midland train here for up to 20 minutes with nothing else to do. Makes Guantanamo seem like Butlins.
Make sure you have a drink before you get here as everything is shut!
Everyone queues for tickets when the machines are empty, why is this?
As normal it's raining and they can't be bothered to open the doors. Let everybody get wet waiting.
Quickest and most comfortable to get here from London Euston is with Virgin Trains to Milton Keynes and then step over for London Midland on platform 3 for a much shorter trip to Northampton Station
Check how long your train will be stopping here for. You're be able to get off and buy some goodies before it takes off again, as it can be up to 15 minutes.
Travelling with London Midland is slow and uncomfortable; if possible use another company.
BGJ lives here :) this is a good thing :))
Roll on the 20 million pound investment for the station upgrade. It's so 1984 here.
Front 4 coaches going to Birmingham
Get a car. You'll not regret it.
A very friendly place to come. Someone is always around to help if needed :)
Don't get a London midland train if it's raining as they leave you standing in the rain with the doors locked.
Pay attention when on a train that splits here to make sure you are in the right half for where you want to go.
Get on a train out of here and not come back
Dev's Mrs off coronation st just got a train at northampton.
Choo chooo trains!!! :-D
Get on a train and head as far south as possible!!
I AIN'T GETTING ON NO TRAIN
Needs a direct train from here to London please?! Spend my life on this journey
Why have they got rid of the tables on the trains? Crazy.
good for trains lol
What a crap stn. Newspaper shop is closed already.
As a Northampton resident even admit this station needs a total revamp. It's a busy line an a Hub to London, so more investment needed.
LM staff love leaving passengers in the rain as it takes forever for the guard to open the doors.
Would it really hurt London Midland to let passengers use the plug sockets in the Waiting Room?
Travelling as a group again saves beer tickets
Do London Midland really need to stop here and connect with other train carriages!? You just delay peoples journeys >_<
Don't expect thing to run smoothly here
Tried to stay on train but it got cancelled. No coffee/ snacks after 8pm and no waiting room after 9pm. Don't get caught out like me!
Buy a great escape when the offer is on, unlimited travel from just £5!
The trains on the Euston line stop here for ages, it's incredibly irritating.
If you find yourself stopping here, keep going. The rest if the world is only a stop away. There is nothing stopping you, stop stalling.
From tamworth to euston the train sits at northampton for hours, get a move on
Beware of incompetent ticket guards. Make sure you have proof of your route or time to confirm with ticket office.
Stay on the train. Northampton is crap.
It's faster to book your tickets in advance online and collect from the ticket machines. Especially during school holidays when the queues can often overflow out of the station.
