Shopping spree and rail replacement

Once again, Network Rail has decided to screw the passengers, by
closing the line from Hamilton Square to Hooton for the whole week.
This afternoon, we have braved it to go to Birkenhead, where I have
bought, among other things, a suit, a pair of shoes, a belt and a
suitcase. Then, taking the view that the rrb would be too full at
Central, we walked up to Hamilton Square. I was right... So now we're
at Birkenhead Central on the bus, as assorted travellers attempt to
get a quart into a pint pot. It's just like the express train was last
night. Happy days...
