Thank you so much for the messages of welcome. They are particularly appreciated down here on the south coast, where local lines are now no more than an extension of the London local network. I almost said an extension of London Overground.

The Class 377ís are extremely uncomfortable and to add to the misery, announcements are belted out every few minutes, particularly on the coastal stretches.

The only advantage of expensive First Class accommodation is that you get a table. Unless you get into the FC section behind the driver, or at the rear, there is a perpetual stream of passengers pushing through in both directions. FC is the preferred accommodation of salesmen, who continue their trading (loudly) on their mobiles.

Do you think I have become a grumpy old man?

However, I become much more cheerful when reading Threads on this Forum.

Cheers to you all.
