"...railway station, train on the eastbound track"

8.38 Five Minutes Late
We're the wrong way round and going backwards without a window.

The man opposite is so busy he's making me dizzy.
He's surrounded by stationery. As fast as he puts one bundle of papers away he's pulling out another. He stuffs a green A4 file into his briefcase then produces a ledger from a carrier bag, punches numbers into a calculator - so fast it must be at random - but writes the answers down, in snaking columns, anyway.

It's Monday morning.
He can't keep this up. He'll be burned out by Wigan North Western, never mind Tuesday.

Bank Holiday Monday - Stephen Duffy
Monday Morning 5.19 - Rialto
Monday - The Jam
Monday, Monday - The Mamas and the Papas
