Agreed. To regard 'pre-covid' as a problem-free paradigm (which it wasn't), to which railways should default is, I feel, foolish. Cards on the table. Being a grumpy old stick in the mud, I've always preferred bog standard, timetabled operations, but even I've been forced to recognise that nowhere near a majority who visit our lines have the slightest interest in the finer points of operation and that they're the 'market' on whom our lines depend for their bread and butter income. That's a basic fact we simply cannot afford to overlook. It's been established that the 'named experience' style of operation has found a market. TBH, I don't feel greatly inclined to any dogmatic viewpoint which ignores that reality, preferring a course of action by no means guaranteed to increase income. Like it or lump it, income is the bottom line.
