WORST. JOURNEY. EVER.
Got to Waterloo.
"Emergency Engineering Works at Wimbledon". (Turns out later that it was a broken rail).
No trains to Exeter (I get off at Axminster).
Have to get to Basingstoke, and pick up an Exeter train from there.
Problem - half the Basingstoke services were cancelled, and the other half were delayed. The train I got eventually left Waterloo just under an hour late.
Arrive at Basingstoke. Next train to Axminster - 2hrs.
Went to Basingstoke bus station to see if there was a bus service. Nope.
Back at the station, the train was due only 30 mins later, so not too bad.
Eventually announced platform 2, first three carriages only for Axminster. We all shuffle up to the right place.
........... changed to platform 4.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.
The rest of us are a bit crap.
