OK it came in an email!
Although fbb has never, personally, experienced this weirdness before, he has, like rumours of the Indian Rope Trick ...
How daft can you get?
Anyway it ought to have been straightforward but today's railway can always throw a wobbly and the 1025 from Woking was cancelled. Boo!
Upon exiting the station, the old man was greeted by a strange scene. There was a RailAir Coach, and beside it a small convocation of First Bus suits (and a few others as it happened) obviously in excited and expectant mood.
But what were they doing there?
It all became clear. They were waiting for the unadvertised pre-launch launch which happened at 1040.
It probably won't feature in today's Times!
While all this jollity was in progress, fbb was checking the stop and frame. The stop pole and flag already existed before being annexed by RailAir2 ...
The environs of the stop were poor (even Sally had deteriorated) ...
Exeter Hospital has a nice (?) stone built sofa.
At 1300 the coach departed (with just one passenger - it's early days) as did the suits. The launch after the launch after the service had launched nearly a fortnight previously was scheduled to happen nearby.
That will form part of tomorrow's blog.
