5 Jan 2007 - Train Crew Problems, Drinks all round

I made the effort to catch the 0642 today. A good decision as I bumped into an annoyed DT at Swindon. He had caught the 0612 from Bath but due to 'train crew' problems, which became 'driver shortages' his train was very late. So we caught the same connection at Swindon. It was his first day back so he was too tired to get stressed about it all. I tried the new back route to work and got in at 0830.

Journey home was fun: met Brenda and DT at Oxford. We decided it was my turn to buy the drinks, so we treated ourselves to Kronenbourg lager at Didcot. Trains were on time.


Journey to work/meeting punctuality: 85%, 11/13
Journey home punctuality: 85%, 11/13
