Platform 12

I have a seat on the 07.48 from Crewe, which is the same train I could
have picked up in Chester. There is a short delay as they dispose of
the diesel locomotive that has hauled it from Holyhead. Now it's
electric traction all the way to London...I hope! Dawn is breaking,
though by the time my contract finishes, this hour will see a
celebration of bright, summer sun. And the maintenance man has just
told us he is about to do a full reset, so the doors will close and
the lights will in out for about five minutes. I think he means that
our train is being rebooted. Good stuff. At least the emergency lights
have come back on now. I expect we'll be on our way shortly.
