After work, I tried to get reservations on either the 18:08 or 18:17 trains, but both were full. So instead I'm on the 18:20 to Manchester, changing at Crewe for Chester.
I'm fortunate that I'm in a first class coach that has been declassified but unfortunate that a most objectionable family is here too.
We stopped at Nuneaton to pick up a load of passengers for Manchester. And now we are runnign an hour late because one of the train in front of us broke down. This is not good.
