On South West Trains

On South West Trains

Those generous curs at South West Trains are currently offering a travel-anywhere-on-our-network-for-a-tenner ticket at weekends.

So, who am I to refuse the chance to travel up to the concrete hell-hole that is Poole for a bit of BLASPHEMOUS Sunday shopping and gaping at the full horror of the Dolphin Centre*?

One cannot help feeling that in order to afford this once-in-a-lifetime offer, our favourite regional rail franchise might have cut a few corners on their PA system:

"Thank you for travelling on this South West Trains service to Weymouth.

"The next station is Wool.

"Wash at forty degrees, reshape and dry flat. Do not tumble dry.

"Please mind the gap between the train and the platform."

I didn't mind the gap at all. It was lovely.
