Wed 3 August - Good again? Yes and no...

The 07:14 is back to its reliable self this morning. On time and no waiting in the yards.

But the 17:49 compensates for that! The familiar routine plays out... standing on the platform, the clock clicks over to 17:49, no sign of the train, no announcement, heads straining in both directions trying in vain to spot the missing train. Eventually it rolls in about four or five minutes late, just a straight announcement that the train's there, no acknowledgement that it's late nor any form of apology. Is it that hard to simply tell people where their train is? What is wrong with these people that they are so contemptuous of their customers?

We get home about seven minutes after the scheduled time, so the train is officially late.
