The tube’s getting better - proof

Posted on 20 April 2009 in London, Transport (2 comments)

Is the tube actually getting better? More reliable? Less problematic? Every time you get stuck in a tunnel, the tuts and sighs come out like nothing has changed. So I guess most people would say no.

Sleeping on the rails part 3 - in Russia with love

Posted on 16 April 2009 in Transport, Travel and Holidays (No comments yet - be the first!)

Prior to this year, I’d only ever taken one journey on a sleeper train. It was 2003 and we were in St Petersburg visiting my sister, and she decided we should go to Moscow for the day to see the sights. Lenin’s Tomb, Red Square and so on. We’d arrive on the sleeper, spend the day there and arrive back in St Petersburg the following morning.

Sleeping on the rails part 2 - off to Scotland on the Caledonian Sleeper

Posted on 15 April 2009 in Transport, Travel and Holidays (No comments yet - be the first!)

In the UK you can get most places in a reasonable time by train so why fly? The journey from London to Edinburgh is perhaps pushing it slightly, with a journey of four and a half hours. So trying the sleeper train to Edinburgh seemed a good idea.

Sleeping on the rails part 1 - we have them in Britain?

When it comes to trains, nothing really evokes the romance of the sleeper. Of boarding a train, and of it whisking you through the night to another city, where an attendant gently wakes you crying “Good morning sir” before handing you your breakfast.
