  • 13:22 Round the block to buy a sandwich. #
  • 15:26 Well, on another round trip. London to Wirral and back within nineteen hours. On an insanity scale of zero to ten, surely an eight or nine. #
  • 15:45 Oh, that's all we need. Just arrived at Euston and they're asking Inspector Sands to report to the Control Centre. #
  • 15:50 Yes, Euston Station has just been evacuated due to a reported emergency. So, what for the 16.10 to Chester? Fire sirens are wailing here. #
  • 16:01 Various BTPs and other staff are inside the station, but the rest of us are outside. All trains up to 1610 showing as "delayed" of course. #
  • 16:09 All the staff are back into Euston and there is an expectation that passengers will be let back in shortly. Some trains retimed. #
  • 16:10 And we're back. #
  • 16:15 Staff lady shouts. "Do not run: the trains will not leave without you" and I'm now on it. 2 hours to Chester, signals & weather permitting. #
  • 16:22 Left Euston at 16.21 or thereabouts. #
  • 16:36 Apparently we'll be 16 minutes late at MK and only seven by the time I get to Chester (18.16, new projected time) - well, we'll see. #
  • 16:47 North of Bletchley and suddenly all the fields are covered with snow again. That's not what I would have expected. #
  • 17:59 As the train runs just that little bit slower, the chances of catching the 18.30 out of Chester are getting that bit slimmer. :+( #
  • 18:33 Actually saw the train leave Chester on its way north. So now it's a rearranged lift and an inconvenience to others. Sorry Debbi #
  • 19:34 Nearly at Hoylake for the Deanery meeting. There *might* be time for a coffee beforehand. #
  • 22:00 Home, after a discussion on the future of Deaneries in Wirral. Fascinating. Coffee now calls, of course. #
