Edinburgh 2022

Tuesday 16 August 2022

Me and trains are going through a bit of a bad patch of late! After getting to Kings X in time to have a half at the Parcel Yard I boarded the (wrong) train to Edinburgh. At Stevenage, the train stopped cos the train in front had damaged the overhead cables. We were there six hours! The people in the train in front had to evacuate the train, walking along the track with luggage to Hitchin or Bigglestwade. 

We eventually got the go ahead to proceed North. The food and drink ran out and to top it all when we got to Newcastle we were told this train was terminated. Thankfully another albeit fullish train picked us up. By this time it was well after midnight - seven hours delayed and the queue (or lack of a discernible queue) at the taxi rank was another story! Still, we're here now and Simon Munnery here we com!

Why is it so difficult to get to the modern art galleries? Two art buses were hiding behind Modern Art gallery 2, but no one to drive them. The website says get the 13 bus, but does it even exist? Missed it anyway so it's a taxi there and the mythical hourly 13 on way back.
