Strange Weather Lately

17.12 Fifteen Minutes Late
"Ladies and Gentlemen, I apologise for the delay which is due to the coupling on the train."

I realise that some trains have a certain inherent romance about them.

The Orient Express, for instance, conjures up images of opulent decadence while the Trans-Siberian Railway is grimy but stimulating. After my trip on the Pendolino the other week it's not too much of a stretch to envisage some kind of updated North by North West/Brief Encounter style goings-on developing en-route to Glasgow... but the 17.12 Northern to Blackpool South?

Or maybe some people are just more imaginative and adventurous than me.
