Well it gets boring if everything goes completely according to plan. As I write this a deceased bus and it’s passengers are sat on the outskirts of Workington. Fear not though, help is on the way ( fingers crossed etc )
The day so far has slid along like a pack of ice skating mice.
All the connections had fallen into place and the weather, while it hadn’t been scorchy hot, it wasn’t freezing or monsoon wet either.
I’m using a Northern Rail Lakes DayRanger ticket, it covers up to Workington on the Cumbrian coast, Penrith on the West Coast Main Line as well as the Windermere branch. You also have a spread of bus services in between.
A man in oil stained overalls is poking things in the engine bay and pressing buttons by the driver’s seat. Fingers crossed. If things get worse I can always eat my fellow passengers.
