Tue 3 January - Happy new year...
You get to Ripponlea at 08:20 to see the 08:19 disappearing into the distance. No worries, they're every 10 minutes at this time of day, so you won't have to wait too long... What's that? The 08:29 is cancelled? Oh well, guess you'll just have to wait for the 08:39. What? It's cancelled too? Damn! Just have to be the 08:49 then... oh wait, that's the token one withdrawn during the holiday period. So the next train is the 08:59.
Nice effort Connex, you'll have some people waiting close to 40 minutes for a train that's supposed to run every ten minutes. And they just paid more for their tickets too... happy 2006!
Fortunately for me I'm on my usual 07:14 and it's only a couple of minutes late.
Home on the 17:27 and it's fine.
