the east cursed main line
January 19th, 2006
Yesterday I travelled to London for the day, using GNER down the east coast. I think I’m cursed on this line, as the last time I tried to do such a long return journey in one day, I got severely held up (because a Virgin train in front of mine caught fire, causing us to wait [the electricity on the line was turned off, so we couldn't move for hours] and then we had to get a bus from Dunbar to Edinburgh).. and yesterday, the train broke down outside Newcastle, causing another big delay.
Oh well. Maybe the East Coast Main Line isn’t as exciting as I’d hoped.
