So there’s a tiny dusting of snow on the ground and the temperature is above freezing. So far the winter timetable just means less trains, not more reliable ones in my view.
This said according to the Met Office forecast it is going to dip back down to zero degrees centigrade, and snow at the same time so maybe conductor rail icing will become an issue.
So when the train gets very squished due to the cancelling of other trains I have come down the line to the terminus at Hayes (Kent) first. This means I now have a window seat sitting facing the direction of travel.
