07:53 am: Live from Crewe
It was a very good night, as The Police played through most of their
hits and a selection of their other stuff too.
The night went on late and it was well after midnight before we were
home, nearly one before we were in bed.
So up at 5.15 wasn't ideal, but here I am at Crewe, waiting for the
07.15 to leave Crewe at 07.48 as it often does.
Then it's usually just under two hours to Euston and a few minutes
across town to Liverpool Street. But the regular readers know that.
It's just that it's noit often on a Wednesday.
The sign on the platform has changed from 'on time' to '07.52'...
A couple of hours snooze would be welcome, but just at the moment I
feel wide awake. Off we go! The rest of the week starts here...

I'm glad you enjoyed the concert.
You sure are on the move a lot and your journey often seems changed or interrupted. Do you get frustrated with all the changes of trains and times, or do you just accept things as they come along? Or are you fascinated?
I'm just curious.

I don't get frustrated. Broadly, there's a plan as to how to get from A to B and I have a good idea ho this will happen. But I am an opportunist, so if there is a chance of getting to B quicker (without extra cost or with only minimal extra cost) then I will do it.
(northbound) So if a train gets to Crewe, I won't necessarily get the advertised connection if the train I arrived on is a couple of minutes early or there's evidence that another train to Chester is running late.
I also write a lot about travel because people can relate to it more than to the mysteries of the new Basel Capital Accord and the calculation of risk weighted asset values, and because anything particularly detailed about it would be (a) boring to the uninitiated (b) a breach of the confidentiality agreements (c) too much like work.

You sound like a spammer to me. If you have recently joined, shouldn't you be logged in to post?
And if you're introducing yourself, give me a clue as to who you are.
It's also more usual to post on a recent post, not one that's a month and a half old.
