Cold in Edinburgh

It was cold in Edinburgh yesterday – very very cold – and windy to boot…

That was once I got there – my train was cancelled, so I ended up on the delayed earlier train – eventually arriving at Waverley an hour late thanks to ‘signal problems at Berwick’. The free coffee provided by GNER helped pass the boredom, although I suspect the young student who had been waiting on the train in Newcastle for two hours had little good to say about them – she left the train briefly to sit on the platform, and the train left without her – no announcements or warning – the doors closed and away we went – leaving her with her head in her hands… I just hope she was reunited with her luggage and a suitable apology!
