Tonight I'm going to go to see sparktastic to sort out her broadband.Latest train running information
: Train services between Staines and Reading via Ascot are being disrupted due to a train failure in the Egham area. Short notice alterations, cancellations and delays of up to 50 minutes can be expected.
There's a train broken down at Egham, with about a dozen trains queued up behind it. None of these trains are proceeding through Egham and on to Reading -- and so therefore there's no prospect of any of them coming back from Reading so that I can ride one of them into London. "delays of up to 50 minutes
" on the website translates to no trains west of Egham at all
in real life, so I'm not going to see Sparky, and her broadband will remain unsorted.
Sparky is a friend of scarlatti
's, and has been since before she moved from Canada to London. Part of tonight was that I was going to be with her when the news from Pathology came through, and that's now not going to happen.
Thank you South West Trains, thank you very much.
