    You get a better class of person working for the train companies these days.

    I've got an app for Dutch trains. Tells yer everything down to the platform you arrive on, to the platform you change to and everything in between!

    You missed it. The 1504 left Vic at 1515. That doesn't explain the board showing it 15 late.

    I love trains. It's just unfortunate that the Tories hate them, preferring cars and roads, and they have gone out of their way to screw the railways up in this country for over 50 years now.
    Except in London and the Home Counties, which the Tories also love.

    Got off the train at Littleborough after a thoroughly delightful return journey to Hebden Bridge - two FOC tickets for £6-30, fifteen minutes each way. Great stuff. And then I noticed that Delay Repay now kicks in after 15 mins. On the way out the half past whatnot train to Blackburn was fifteen late, and the next post stated that it had been cancelled. Tough shit for anyone waiting to get to Blackburn and cutting the timing fine! But the thought struck me that if the train is cancelled after fifteen or sixteen minutes late a cancelled train can't be delayed! Crafty.
