1314. Swindon Train Station. Just passed the brutalist, vandalised and for sale Swindon College. It made me sick, literally. Chundering on a platform in Swindon isn’t recommended, as the locals look down at you, a feat I thought was impossible. Surprisingly the 1314 was late and therefore missed the connection at Didcot Parkway, then Oxford then Birmingham New Street. An hour late, the Stansted train from New Street went via Derby. Not that they told us this. How hard is it to explain to people that we’re going to be late due to engineering works?
