Well, more sort of mugged by the tube and First Great Western.

Some erratic signalling meant that the 32 minute journey from Bank to Paddington took 1 hour and 15 minutes.

This in turn meant that even though I’d allowed an hour to get my train out of the city, I actually missed it.

Thus a requirement arose for a further ticket at the not un-princely sum of 32 quid plus sitting around on a cold platform for another 40 minutes.

I can see no reason to ever want to venture back up here again.

I’ll be back on Wednesday. This time with a slightly more expensive open ended ticket to allow for underground ineptitude.

Deep Joy.
