    Happy new year from southern rail.

    There we were wishing our nephew a happy birthday today, whilst he was boarding a train at Hampden Park.
    Then in the background, an announcement comes across the tannoy wishing all a happy new year, then started to list all the latest engineering works for the week.
    Unbelievable, they lure you in with seasons greetings, then wham, they blindside with the latest doom and gloom.
    Good luck to you all when playing with the southern rail train set in 2019.

      I have to be very close to you on 3 Jan in Uxbridge. Fully expecting the clowns to be running a replacement bus service or some such.

      Are you travelling by car or train?

      Train. Can't do the M25 in rush hour as I end up feeling like Michael Douglas in Falling Down . At least with Southern / Met Line I can work or read a good book.

      Our head office is there so I end up doing the trip a couple of times a week normally.

      Hopefully we will be delivered and returned from the London Stadium tomorrow with no dramas
      I surrender all control
      To the desire that consumes me whole
      Leads me by the hand to infinity
      Lies in wait at the heart of me - the Albion of course !

      We will all have to be patient with trains while the genius that is Transport Minister Chris Grayling takes time off to sort the cross-channel ferry crisis. Yes, that's right - the one he has got us into by awarding a multi-million-pound contract to a company with no actual ships.
      England are still the only team to have won the World Cup wearing red shirts.

      I know - it is (almost) unbelievable. But there again is it really ?
      I have friends who were at university with him where he was apparently derided as a complete and utter twunt.

      If Southern Rail ever brought out a train set, I'm sure everything would fail, and it would be quickly put back into the box and returned to the retailer for a full refund
