Last Great Western

Regular readers will know I hate travelling by train. My periodic business trips to London particularly as First Great Western regularly fail to get you to where you need to be on time or without some form of drama.
Today for instance the 06.55 from Cardiff to London Paddington arrived into Cardiff 15 minutes late because of a "trespass" on the line and then at Bristol became hugely overcrowded - standing room only because the previous train had been aborted at Bristol because of a door that wouldn't shut. End result 20 minutes late into London and a lot of hacked off commuters. And the unfortunate thing is it's nearly always like this.
I'm just glad I only have to put up with this once or twice a month.
