Paul Higgins:

Interesting thought from a business model point of view. There is a Hub office/work space sharing system in Melbourne and one of its attractions is that it is close to Southern Cross Station where all the regional rail lines come into and is part of the city loop rail system. Having a work space where I can meet clients that I can just get off and on at the rail station certainly looks attractive. Has to boost the value of the network’s land assets and probably a minor boost in train traffic as well.

stoweboyd:

Network Rail, the owner and operator of Britian’s railway infrastructure, is getting with the ‘work anywhere’ movement:

Business travellers thwarted by train delays need look no further: Network Rail is laying on temporary office space at five London stations from next year.

Beginning in Paddington in mid-2012, workers on the move will be able to access working areas with lounges, meeting rooms and broadband after the rail operator struck a £40 million deal with The Office Group, which specialises in temporary office space.

Amtrak should get on this, too.
