Travel chaos

So, in my vain attempt to go to Carlisle today, I found out that the trains in the UK actually don’t like the cold weather…

So, I was planning to get the 1023 train, but it was delayed until about 1050ish according to the ticket office guy, so I thought I’d leave it for a bit, check the departures board etc, before buying a ticket – and I’m glad I did.

Southbound was still waiting for the 0742 train to arrive – only 2h40m late! A train had broken down at Tebay, and all the other trains had got stuck behind it.

Eventually they managed to move it, but a lot of trains were in the wrong place after that.

This country seriously doesn’t know how to cope with cold weather…
