Holidays ending .....
Will "5 minutes is close enough" become like the Japanese credo of "1 minute is still LATE"!
We can but hope.
I draw some hope from the planned fare reductions coming in March and the introduction of '1st class upgrade' vouchers that have (very) quietly been launched, which enable regular commuters such as myself not to be disadvantaged by services lacking a 1st Class carriage/section.
All steps in the right direction. I really do hope I can retire this blog this year, but I'm not holding my breath.
