Sorry this was meant to be in a Sprinter thread.
There's nothing overtly wrong with Sprinters. I can think of comparatively worse interurban trains to travel in.I've got to the point where I wait seven minutes longer to catch a V'lo home, if I am not in a hurry that is, but admittedly, this is probably because the service 7 minutes later is less popular. I find the spinters less comfortable, but they are not a bad train. I would take them over an H set.
