    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

    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.

    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.

    The caramel latte from pumpkin cafe is decent enough as are the ham and cheese and cheese and tomato toasties!

    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

    LM staff love leaving passengers in the rain as it takes forever for the guard to open the doors.

    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.

    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.

    Enjoy mountaineering? You'll love the new temporary stairs to get to platforms 3 & 4!

    Pay attention when on a train that splits here to make sure you are in the right half for where you want to go.

    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.

    As normal it's raining and they can't be bothered to open the doors. Let everybody get wet waiting.

    Roll on the 20 million pound investment for the station upgrade. It's so 1984 here.

    The trains on the Euston line stop here for ages, it's incredibly irritating.

    Don't get a London midland train if it's raining as they leave you standing in the rain with the doors locked.

    Beware of incompetent ticket guards. Make sure you have proof of your route or time to confirm with ticket office.

    Would it really hurt London Midland to let passengers use the plug sockets in the Waiting Room?

    Travelling with London Midland is slow and uncomfortable; if possible use another company.

    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.
