Exeter to Sheffield Excitements (?)
Special Thanks Are Due ...
... to the Elmores for booking seats all the way from Exeter to Sheffield ...
As usual there was the scrum and venom spitting at every stop as people sat in seats booked for others or couldn't find their booked seats or had not booked seats at all. The fbbs didn't book in case of a last minute change of plan following the Jacko demise crisis on Friday. But they were well chuffed that they did not have to join the mayhem.
How about large notices thus:-
Three *systems" are being used to cope with the complications.
Surely someone or some technology could have said "change at Newcastle for trains to Edinburgh"?
But nothing did!

But there was an extra bonus for the GoTimetable Sheffield App. A leaflet was passed on to a Travel South Yorkshire staff member (who will remain anonymous for obvious reasons).
He downloaded the App and promptly posted a review on-line.
