    Wrong forum for that kind of thing. Try Pistonheads or Landlordzone.

    I'm young enough to have had a posh one that showed roots, indices and fractions in notation

    you can just use e

    Agree with all above saying that e is not intelligible to a non-technical audience, whereas everyone gets taught indices and standard form at school. I only ever learnt about it in the context of Excel shortcuts despite doing a maths/stats-adjacent uni course.

    Standard form doesn't use ^

    The ^ is just for us simpletons that don't know how to type superscripts

    The non high-speed goes to the other side of london and takes 30 minutes longer.

    Sounds like I am years out of date but BITD the Faversham slow tickets were about 20% cheaper than a similar length journey I used to do down to Hampshire.

    Victoria worked for me versus (IIRC) St Pancras but obviously not for everyone.

    EDIT: I just looked this up and Faversham (fast) is about the same price as Petersfield for a weekday anytime ticket, whereas Faversham (slow) is 15% cheaper for a 10 minute longer journey than Petersfield. I think the suggestion is broadly correct.

    If you talk to people who live in Dover, there is a lot of bitterness over ticket prices for the high speed train to London.

    Yes, but the non-high speed line is cheaper than equivalent journeys on lines that don't have high speed. I used to go to see family in Faversham at the weekend and always opted out of high speed to save cash.

    More capacity is always good, even for those not directly using the new capacity.

    Lol, maybe they have been mis-sold and should get a refund.
