Last Thursday saw me in London for a meeting at CIPFA's offices. 6am start. Good job that I’ve got used to getting up early with Ava.
Nowadays the train journey is tortuous. Busy. Noisy. Overcrowded. Slow. Expensive. Impossible to get any work done.
Network rail boast that punctuality has improved. No doubt it has, but that is because the scheduled journey times have got longer and longer. Its now over 2 hours from Cardiff to London Paddington. I’m sure that it used to be 20 minutes or so quicker than that in the not too distant past.
