So this morning I noticed (thanks to a text from my friend James) that the cannon street train before my Charing Cross train was cancelled. Last time they did this my train ended up rather full as I was up early I had a choice.
07.18 to London Charing Cross, but this is a 10 coach train I.e. made of the rolling stock I hate.
07.19 to Hayes also made the the horrible rolling stick, but connects with my normal train at Hayes. (8 coaches of the older better rolling stock)
So I’ve gone for the slower, but comfy seat into London option and have a nice window seat for when it gets crowded I shall be well out of the way.
