[LJ2ME] More rail fun [Mar. 28th, 2005|01:47 pm]
Nick
[mood |Resigned]

Today, we're trying to get home, and the train gods are once again against us.

We got to glasgow central, only to find our train wasn't going to be getting there. Instead, we were put onto a london euston train. We sat there for 10 minutes, then watched the gner train get cancelled, owing to power problems.

10 minutes later they cancelled our train, and told up to wait for a cup to carlisle. We headed off, but no buses were to be found.

Deciding this was a bad sign, we got the virgin staff to ok travel by the east coast, and we walked over to queen street. A few minutes later we were on a nice but busy scotrail train to Edinburgh.

In a few minutes time we're going to get on a plymouth train, and hopefully get in only 2 hours late...

And now the train companies are trying to transport people using crockery! No wonder they are in such a state.

Bah. That'll teach me not to pay attention when typing LJ posts via predictive text...

We finally got back 3 hours late. Luckily we'd used that time to write the letter of complaint, just filled in the blanks as we went!
