    Some managed it would appear....

    We're next going through on the evening of the 11th Sept. Being positive though as it's more often working correctly (ish) than not. We've never had a problem .. other than no aircon on a carriage.

    we are going on the 7th as well. Early train, about 07.00 I think. Hope it is reasonably on time although it won't matter too much if there is a short delay as we can just brew up. Happy travels to all. We may see one or two of you around.
