"Please tell me that the train won't break down again today", said the passenger next to me to the conductor on the 09:37 to Victoria from Ramsgate yesterday morning.

"It's a different driver today said the conductor cheerfully, we should be OK but keep your fingers crossed."

At Bromley South, the train stopped, permanently, with apologies from the same driver."This train has broken down", he said. What a surprise!

Fifteen minutes later another train arrived on the platform with only four carriages and four thousand people squeezed into every space in an effort to reach Victoria before Saturday. Posted by Hello
