This is where my train should be. This is where my train should have been 10 minutes ago. This is the platform where 85 people are standing, with no announcement about delays or cancellations. Awesome, East Midlands once again.
Until recently, I was a constant commuter, travelling 5 hours per day on public transportation. Good job in one city, great family in a another. Riding on the train provides a weird little snapshot of Britishness. I hope you enjoy my musings.
