Life in the fast lane – when it’s actually running
I actually got a London Overground train this weekend. It’s been a while. Not because I don’t want to use it but because it seems to be closed every weekend for engineering works – well at least the weekends that I want to use it. During the week, it’s an overcrowded nightmare. You only get a seat if you get on at the first stop on the line, otherwise you stand all the way. It serves west, north and east London. You’d think with that demographic they would run more than 4 trains an hour but no. At the weekend, when you can get on it, it’s a pleasant way to travel through London.
A little further down the line…
I took this one of a man getting on the train. I like this because of the reflections from inside the carriage.
