The Trains are Still Crap

Following my joyous experience on Friday at Liverpool Street
station, came Monday morning, when I attempted the return journey.

Catheryn and I arrived at Chelmsford station with plenty of time to spare, as it was Catheryn's first day at her new job. This was all to no avail as something had gone wrong at Stratford, and the train drove at about 4mph all the way into London, and we arrived over an hour late.

Life at Chelmsford Station

Not only this, but we had to stand the whole journey, and listen to various announcements about 'overhead lines', 'half an hour delay', 'two lines instead of four', and 'congestion on the way into London'.

Another great day for the railways of Britain.
