Dry trains - latest info

VTEC CC Aubrey Morandarte2

The Football Supporters’ Federation (FSF) opposes laws and rules which discriminate against fans and “dry trains” – where alcohol is banned – fall into that category. However, we also believe it’s vital that fans know the lay of the land and stay up to date with dry trains that may affect their match-day travel.
