in fact it experienced a major upswing in traffic because along the route is Castle Cary, the stop of choice for Glastonbury festival. Hopefully by the time i leave work at 5ish today most of the festival-goers will have already gone home as opposed to be coming home.

I am going to have mental train hell at the end of the week due to Henley Regatta. BOO.

our local train broke last week, nine people dead when one rear-ended another, their early verdict is two circuits failed that should have prevented it, and the emergency braking the driver managed to apply wasn't enough to save her

it looked pretty horrible, supposed to have been the worst DC Metro has seen

edit: was was, I'm a ray of sunshine today

I took a train trip to Bristol a couple of weeks back - got a seat both ways.

Ironically enough, i got the Henley toffs on MY train! Unscheduled stop at Twyford, two hundred blokes in blazers, ties and hats get on. Curses.
